Religious Thought And The Modern Psychologies

by Don S. Browning, Religious Thought And The Modern Psychologies Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Religious Thought And The Modern Psychologies books, "Religious Thought and the Modern Psychologies has pioneered the broader and deeper critique of psychological theories and practice. Informed by hermeneutical theory, Browning's widely acclaimed work drew much-needed attention to the ethical and metaphysical, even religious, assumptions that underlie present-day psychology. It has been deeply influential in many social sciences, in addition to the fields of pastoral counseling and practical theology. In this much-needed second edition, Browning and his new co-author show how the field of social science has indeed grasped and appropriated the hermeneutical approach, though with only slight appreciation of the religious dimensions of the social scientific endeavor. Browning and Cooper provide a completely new first chapter, newly situating the discussion, and update the core chapters of the book. They also add two new chapters, carrying the dialogue on with three new psychotherapeutic theorists, then with new evangelical writers on the relation of theology and psychology. This new edition, like its predecessor, will set the stage for the religion-psychology dialogue for years to come.

Religious Ethics And Pastoral Care

by Don S. Browning, Religious Ethics And Pastoral Care Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Religious Ethics And Pastoral Care books, Don Browning's important work critically appropriates the distinctive insights of religious ethics and contemporary psychology to inform and reform both. Here he elaborates the moral context for pastoral care by formulating five levels of practical moral thinking, illustrates them in two case studies involving homosexuality, and integrates the levels into a method of theological practice. It is a helpful but not dominating ethical framework for pastoral care and counseling useful to students, pastors, and congregations alike."Browning, in this book, continues efforts to teach religious ethics to those working as counselors.... It presents a clear argument and method for laying practical and workable foundations of religious ethics in pastoral work."-Clergy Journal"[Browning] points out that much of our pastoral care is undergirded by unexamined or only partially examined moral and ethical thinking.... In our efforts to avoid moralism, we have moved more and more toward a stance of ethical neutrality which has done a disservice to the people who look to us for help. Pastoral care and counseling need to be grounded in a practical moral theology or theological ethics."-Christian Century"Browning provides ample resources for pastors to begin a discipline of critical moral reflection, especially in their role as counselors.... His borrowings from moral philosophers and theological ethics are explicated in the context of case studies and should prove helpful for anyone engaged in the practice of ministry."-Religious Studies ReviewDon S. Browning is Alexander Campbell Professor Emeritus of Ethics and the Social Sciences, Divinity School, University of Chicago. His work at the intersection of theological ethics and social sciences has led to suchpioneering and influential works as Religious Thought and the Modern Psychologies and A Fundamental Practical Theology.

Marriage And Modernization

by Don S. Browning, Marriage And Modernization Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Marriage And Modernization books, The processes of modernization and globalization promise more wealth and health for many people. But they are also a threat to the stability and quality of marriage and family life. This new book -- at once sobering and constructive -- looks at the impact of these processes on marriage and asks what Christianity, in cooperation with other religions, can do to strengthen married life today. Among the deleterious effects of modernization and globalization on marriage are a worldwide drift of men away from the responsibility of parenthood and the tendency of mothers too readily to take on the task of childrearing alone. After looking at recent research on these and other problems, Don Browning suggests that the cure for modern marital disruption entails reforming and reconstructing the institution of marriage while also nurturing relevant forms of social support. Yet the effort to initiate a "world marriage revival" requires a complex cultural work, and Browning explores the key contributions that the religions of the world must make for such an effort to be successful.
