I had the privilege of writing a response to an article by theologian Kevin VanHoozer in a recent edition of the Journal of Christian Psychology’s Edification. VanHoozer is the author of many fine books, including The Drama of Doctrine. His article attempts to apply his ‘theodramatic’ proposal to counseling and psychology. My response and critique is a challenge for him to expand his anthropology, as I found his focus to be largely cognitive-behavioral. Along with the contributions of a number of other respondents, the issue highlights issues of theological and psychological integration. Read it here. VanHoozer’s article begins at page 5, and my response is at page 17.
