In this deep and enlightening discussion, psychologist and theologian James E. Loder demonstrates how a theological perspective enlarges our understanding of how humans grow and develop from birth to healthy adulthood. Loder examines the intimate relationship between the human and the divine and provides moving case studies, bringing the work of psychologists Freud, Erikson, and Piaget to that of seminal Christian theologians Kierkegaard, Barth, and Pannenberg. Loder acknowledges that psychological stage theories enable us to understand the logic of humans' evolving relationship with the world and with God. At the same time, he demonstrates that the divine spirit has a logic of its own, which is not bound by stages, and which reveals patterns of ultimate significance in the transient, fleeting moments we call a human lifetime.
