Human Development: Psychology and Mystery

Front Cover
Peeters Publishers, 1998 - 397 pages
This book is a magisterial treatment of the wide spectrum of psychological aspects of growing in grace as a spiritual creature, while also developing as a human being. For the author 'being human' is physical, psychological, and spiritual. The integration of all three is for him a possibility both to be desired and worked toward, not a paradox. As a teacher of teachers, Imoda has been commited to transmitting to his students a way to teach novices and laymen how growing in the love of God is a logical development from increasing the grasp of their emotional bases. For teachers this book is a 'vade mecum' which gives them a structure within which people can be encouraged to explore their emotional underpinnings, so that they may grow out of their psychological and spiritual immaturity.
