In this bold interpretation of the human condition, psychiatrist Jeffrey Boyd seeks to reclaim the significance of the soul. Suggesting that the secular mental health movement is largely to blame for the self-centeredness of contemporary culture, Boyd argues that only by understanding the self theologically can one understand the true nature of the human psyche - and the true meaning of our existence.
