Podcast: DEVELOPING a personality with Marjorie Lindner Gunnoe

October 19, 2022

On this episode of the podcast, I’m joined by a guest co-host Dr. Mark Christians, and together we interview Dr. Marjorie Lindner Gunnoe about her new book The Person in Psychology and Christianity: A Faith-Based Critique of Five Theories of Social Development. Among the topics we discuss:

  • – Why ordinary people might be interested in developmental psychology
  • – Why these five (Erikson, Bowlby, Skinner, Bandura, and Evolutionary Psychology) were selected for the book.
  • – Dr. Gunnoe’s “faith-based working model of the human person”
  • – The relationship of psychology and religion and why we should learn from others who do not share our faith
  • – The implications of things like attachment theory for discipleship
