Berger, K. (2003). Identity and Experience in the New Testament (C. Muenchow, Trans.). Minneapolis: Fortress Press.

[From the Publisher’s description]:”How do the New Testament documents present issues of passion, will, identity, and perception? How did the earliest followers of Jesus understand their experiences, behaviors and suffering? …Rather than approaching the New Testament with a Freduian, Jungian, or other modern psychological theory, Berger illuminates historically how peoples of the first century described their human experiences in relation to their encounters with God, Christ, demons and the power of their own desires and will.”
