Exploring Psychology and Christian Faith Book Excerpt:

Introductory psychology courses can raise significant questions about the nature of being human. Christianity, with its emphasis on humans made in the image of God, has a clear perspective. Psychology offers answers too, but they are often subtly implied. This introductory guide, drawn from more than fifty years of classroom experience, provides students with a coherent framework for considering psychology from a Christian perspective. The authors explore biblical themes of human nature in relation to all major areas of psychology, showing how a Christian understanding of humans can inform the study of psychology. Brief, accessible chapters correspond to standard introductory psychology textbooks, making this an excellent supplemental text. End-of-chapter questions are included. A test bank for professors is available through Baker Academic's Textbook eSources.

When Anxiety Roars Book Excerpt:

According to the American Psychological Association, today's children and teenagers are anxious about many things. In addition to the stressors common to any generation--family issues, financial instability, pressure to perform in school or sports--these young people also worry about gun violence, social justice, the state of their divided nation, the fate of a warming planet, and much more. To top it off, recent global events and resulting restrictions have added significant stress even as they have stripped away support systems. For parents, teachers, counselors, and youth leaders longing to understand and help the young people in their lives, When Anxiety Roars unpacks the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual factors that influence anxiety in children and offers specific practical steps to take together to tame that anxiety. Integrating faith with best practices to reduce anxiety, it also teaches coping skills that will help children live more confidently today and into the future.

Lectures on General Psychology Volume One Book Excerpt:

Lectures on General Psychology ~ Volume One circumnavigates the world of psychology in a comprehensive and critical manner. It offers students a leisurely cruise that sails with rational flags unfurled. The itinerary commences with a consideration of the diversity and methods of psychology and proceeds to put in at the ports of memory, learning, personality and neuroscience. Volume One offers students a fun excursion in which Prof. Ford explains, among many tantalizing topics— How psychology has never been a coherent science. How students can become educated consumers of research. How the memory principles of proactive and retroactive interference can enhance one’s love life. How the positive punishment of children can become part of the shopping experience at the local mall. How, by pretending to be incompetent, students can make friends and influence people. And how, based on brain hemisphere specialization, it’s better for guys to whisper sweet nothings into their girlfriends’ right ears than into their left ears. There have never been lectures on general psychology like the ones in Volume One. Students are invited on board a voyage of psychological discoveries. The trip is entertaining, exhilarating, and thoroughly educational.
