Finally: Psychology Textbook from a Christian Perspective

Dr. Tim Rice : Jan 9, 2013 : Christian Newswire

"Surveys suggest that as many as 75% of Christian students 'walk away' from their faith within 12 months of entering college. If that statistic is accurate, and if it has anything to do with the teaching in college, it is because Christian students are unprepared for the worldview challenges embedded in modern Psychology's theories and schools-of-thought."

(Blue Ridge, GA)—Every year thousands of Christian students leave home for college. When they arrive, they will probably take an Introductory Psychology class. For most, it will be their first exposure to Psychology. Dr. Tim Rice, LPC, author of Psychology: A Christian Perspective, High School Edition, thinks that is risky.

Psychology-Christian Dr. Rice states, "Surveys suggest that as many as 75% of Christian students 'walk away' from their faith within 12 months of entering college. If that statistic is accurate, and if it has anything to do with the teaching in college, it is because Christian students are unprepared for the worldview challenges embedded in modern Psychology's theories and schools-of-thought."

Why are Christian students unprepared? Dr. Rice states, "Among Christians, Psychology is controversial and our disagreements are often contentious. Many Christians see Psychology as an idolatrous and ungodly rival religion and are concerned that there is no room for faith in its study. Some have called Psychology 'the great seduction in preparation for the antichrist.' Others believe that God created Psychology when He created Man and that we have a duty to study it." According to Rice, "because the disagreements about Psychology are so contentious no one has taken on the task of covering this subject at the worldview level, especially in a way that supports high school students, until now."

Psychology: A Christian Perspective, High School Edition offers a comprehensive overview of Psychology. It is appropriate for high school students—challenging, but understandable, with interesting case studies and examples. For more information, follow the link provided.
