About-

What does it mean to be both a Christian and a therapist?

Between Jerusalem and Athens offers a compelling answer to this question. It shows students and practitioners who struggle with this issue how they can authentically integrate faith and practice by considering the central, life-shaping theme of biblical Christian ethics: the Reign of God.

Part 1 proposes that a distinct cultural ethic based on the central theme of the Reign of God be the context of therapy. Part 2 explores how the church can be a community of ethical reflection and healing. Part 3 discusses the therapist's character and a model for developing character that reflects the Reign of God.
