0 Reviews
Growing in the Church is a synthesis of psychology and theology which demonstrates why faith is necessary even in today's world, and how it meets the needs of modern humanity. Eschewing linear logic, Buckley uses psychology as the basis for his work, which is a journey through the formation of the Christian psyche. A rich book, yet simple in concept, it will fascinate Catholics and students of religion alike.
