you will outline your view on the relationship between Christianity and psychology. Hopefully, reading how others have described the relationship and watching others talk about psychological phenomena as Christian scholars has helped you see how others are doing research as Christians in this field. You also have spent time thinking about what the science of psychology in your specific interest area looks like from a biblical worldview.
At the end of his book, Johnson (2010) states, “For the Christian, the science of psychology and the art of counseling are fundamentally religious enterprises, as is all of life” (p. 311).
In this discussion, please contemplate that quote by Johnson and comment on what that looks like for you going forward in your research area.
