“Notes on the Christian Psychology Model”

Below, I have provided information relevant to the Analysis section of the review of the book by Hawkins and Clinton.  First, I provide some general perspectives.  Then I provide notes on the 5th theoretical model illustrated in the PowerPoint presentation entitled:  “Comparing the 5 Views Christians Take to Psychology” I have provided some notes relevant to this model.  These notes do not cover the entire textbook; however, I feel they will give you a sense of model that I feel best corresponds to the model advanced by Hawkins and Clinton, namely: “The Christian Psychology Model.”

The reference for the PowerPoint presentation:

General Perspective


·         Purpose of book: “The purpose of this book is to embolden and equip those who have a spiritual awareness but lack the knowledge and confidence to declare their position on the role of faith in emotional and psychological healing” (p. 7).


--“The Holy Spirit (HS) regenerates the human heart so the person can respond in faith to the gospel of grace and become a child of God” (p. 83).


--“Real, supernatural power for lasting change comes from the Holy Spirit” (p. 83).


-- “… Christian counselors are anchored in the importance of the spiritual dimension for the development of full humanity” (p. 84).


-- “The real power for lasting change comes from the Holy Spirit, who is at the foundation of biblical spirituality, is joined to truth-based thinking, a commitment to obeying the truth revealed in the Scripture, and life in a community of encouragement and accountability” (p. 86).


--“Godly change is transformational change – change that lasts and has a deeper impact – and people of faith are now demanding nothing less” (p. 15)
