Review Text

  • By Bradley P. Hayton on February 28, 2012

    Is there anything that could bring together such divergent theological persuasions as represented by Paul Tillich and Jay Adams? Apparently so. The editor has brought together a plethora of divergent theological and psychological opinions and reflections on the topic of wholeness and holiness.Maloney has shown that fundamentalists, evangelicals, and neo-orthodox are all humanists in the good sense of the term. In an age when there has been so much tension between theological persuasions and psychological theories, Malony has given us a deeply human book as well as a deeply spiritual book. He has unified their writings around the topics of the human predicament, the experience of living, the meaning of health, the process of healing, and methods of therapy.It is a book that at once will wet the palate and excite the appetite. The complexity of the issues that center around these two concepts of wholeness and holiness is great. They have both absolute and relative meaning. The meaning of wholeness to one person may not carry the same connotation to another person in another culture or even another life stage. Likewise, holiness always needs to be interpreted according to the process dimensions of time, place, and person.What is the relationship between wholeness and holiness? Malony concludes that one cannot truly be whole unless he has a relationship with Christ. Yet this still only scratches the surface of the depth of their relationship. These and many more issues have become the theme of Malony's superb book.This is a fine companion volume to Fleck and Carter's Psychology and Christianity: Integration Readings (Abingdon, 1981). Whereas Fleck and Carter have put together more recent articles on integration, Malony has included seminal articles written over the past twenty-five years. Fleck and Carter's volume is more "evangelical" in content, while Malony has assembled a wide variety of theological and psychological persuasions. Accordingly, Fleck and Carter's edition is composed almost exclusively of articles from JPT, whereas Malony's sources cover a wide range of theological, psychological, and pastoral counseling journals. Malony's edition has, therefore, taken on a somewhat less theoretical flavor than Fleck and Carter's edition, and is more centered around the more human and personal theme of wholeness and holiness.Every Christian in the mental health field must read this volume. Advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and professors of psychology and religion will find this book not only invaluable in their attempt to integrate theology and psychology theoretically, but also in their quest for wholeness and holiness in their own lives and the lives of their clients.-- Journal of Psychology and Theology, 1984, Spring, 12 (1), 66.
