Christian Psychology: Toward a New Synthesis

McDonagh, John M.

 McDonagh, a psychologist in private practice, discusses the relation between psychology and religion and offers this book as a bridge between secular and Christian psychology. The last two chapters, which comprise half the book, are of relevance to parapsychology. One is a long chapter subtitled "The Case for an Afterlife," in which he marshals the evidence for survival, in particular that provided by near-death experiences. He responds to the criticisms that have been offered by opponents of NDEs. Various explanations of NDEs and out-of-body experiences are examined and he presents his own survival hypothesis. The last chapter is based on the assumption that there is a spirit world, and he considers how we may become acquainted with it. McDonagh examines one of these¯that of the Christian doctrine concerning the soul.
