Rollins, Wayne G. and Kille, D. Andrew (Eds.). (2007) Psychological Insight into the Bible: Texts and Readings. Grand Rapids: Wm B. Eerdmans.
“Psychological Insight into the Bible is a veritable exposition of the famous Abraham Heschel’s statement that `the Bible is less a theology for man than an anthropology for God.’ From all possible angles the book deals with the issue as spelled out in the title. What `insight’ does psychology bring to the understanding of the biblical text, of its background (or archaeological history), of its foreground (or teleological assimilation by its readers), of its impact on the `psyche’? Exploring this field from Aristotle to contemporary psychoanalysts and Bible scholars, via Freud, Jung, Winnicott, Frankl, Weber, Delitzsch, Wheeler Robinson and others, the book builds a compelling case for the immense richness of `insights’ that the psychological methodology offers to the exegete, and, reciprocally, biblical anthropology to the psychologist. This is an indispensable tool for students of the Bible and/or of psychology.”
