The Integration of Theology and Psychology to the Glory of God

Is it possible for theology and psychology to be integrated when Christianity and the discipline of psychology have been at odds with one another currently and in the past? With the naturalistic presuppositions that Carl Rogers and Sigmund Freud set in place, is it indeed wise to even claim that psychology and theology can complement one another? What is the apologetical rationale for addressing such a topic? What roles do sin and grace assume in the discipline of Christian counseling, and what should the church’s response be to the reality of those suffering from mental illness? Host Candace Jackson, staff apologists Jeremy Livermore and Sam Welbaum, and guest Sara Roberts discuss these issues and many more, contending that God can indeed utilize the integration of psychology and theology when carefully practiced, for the glory of His name and for the overall purpose of removing emotional impediments to one trusting in Christ as his or her Savior.
