Johnson states (2010), “This book provides an opportunity to understand the intellectual crisis facing the church in the area surrounding psychology and counseling, and it does this by exploring five major positions evangelicals have taken regarding the relationship of psychology and the Christian faith” (p. 38).  In this module’s reading of  Psychology and Christianity: Five Views, Levels-of-Explanation View, Christian Psychology View, and a Biblical Counseling View are discussed.

Provide a brief overview of each view discussing the critique of each.

· Even though all the models have not been discussed so far in the class, of the 3 presented in this module, which one do you feel more closely aligns with your view of integration?

· What would you change or remove from this view to make it fit more closely to what you believe integration should look like?

· Use the text and scripture. You can also use the other class texts to help to connect the different conceptualizations of what integration looks like.
