Is it possible to develop such a thing as a biblical theology of mental health? How might we develop a helpful and pastoral use of scripture to explore questions of mental health within a Christian framework?

This timely and important book integrates the highest levels of biblical scholarship with theological and pastoral concerns to consider how we use scripture when dealing with mental health issues.

Chapters include Paula Gooder on Healing and wholeness; Joanna Collicutt on Jesus and mental health; Isabelle Hamley on Job; David Firth on Anxiety in Scripture; John Swinton on The Bible in Pastoral Care and Walter Brueggemann on Psalms and lament
