Sites attempting to integrate (or disagreeing with efforts to integrate) psychology with Christian theology or practice are welcome here.A largely American movement to integrate the theory and praxis of psychology with Christian theology and praxis.

Different researchers in the field disagree as to what degree such an integration is appropriate, and if so, which discipline should take precedence, if either.
