Pop psychology, with its ubiquitous half-truths, is the product of an attachment disorder of the deepest kind that binds us to false ways of living and false perceptions of what is real. What we need, argue John Coe and Todd Hall, is a truly transformative psychology that is thoroughly integrated with, informed by and shaped by the rich Christian tradition of spiritual formation. What we need is a psychology transformed by the Spirit.
