Christian Psychology


Christian Psychology: A Transdisciplinary Journal

Christian Psychology is published twice a year. The journal began with the name Edification, but changed into Christian Psychology in 2013 to more directly expresses our agenda: Christian Psychology. We are using the term Christian psychology very broadly to cover the disciplined inquiry into the nature of human beings from the standpoint of a Christian world-and-life-view.  

Those interested in Christian psychology are invited to submit manuscripts. We are looking for empirical, theoretical, and applied articles. Contributions from diverse disciplines are encouraged, including philosophy, sociology, cultural studies, biology, psychiatry, theology, biblical studies, and pastoral ministry, and all subdisciplines of psychology. Those interested in submitting manuscripts and book reviews that address the broad interests of this journal are encouraged to contact our managing/book review editor, Lydia Kim-van Daalen at

  1. Hello, My name is Lorraine Hodges. I am the librarian for Pillar College. We have Edification on our library website. However I just noticed that we do not have an edition for 2013. Is the magazine still published? If so can I get the most recent edition.

    Thank you, Lorraine Hodges

    For various reasons, we are somewhat behind in our publication schedule, but the two issues of Edification for 2013 are in development and will be published in the first half of 2014. They will both be very good. Thanks for your patience.

    It would be useful if you could allow readers to subscribe to the journals by email (so we could be informed when new issues are available). So, please add a “subscribe” option!

    The link of “Edification 4.2 (2010) A Christian in Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Studies” seems wrong. It directs to another issue.
