The Rise, Decline, and Recovery of the Human Soul – Bruce Hindmarsh

Bruce Hindmarsh (Regent College) comments on the need for developing a spiritual theology of the human person at CCT’s Fall 2013 Pastors’ Luncheon. We have Christian psychologists but we arguably do not yet have a Christian psychology. Such a psychology will require a Christian understanding of the personal to integrate the dimensions of the human psyche, but to appreciate this requires an archeological method, turning to history to see how the soul has been understood, past and present. This will allow us to recover, even in our modern age, a sense of the soul’s entelechy, that is, its divine origin and destiny.
