Dr. Dan and Kate Montgomery's masterwork on integrating psychology and theology has practical application in the fields of pastoral ministry, counseling, personality theory, and discipleship. Praised by professors at Yale, Fuller, Gordon-Conwell, Garrett-Evangelical, University of Dubuque, Andover Newton, and Dallas theological seminaries, the Self Compass® growth tool produces personality transformation, strengthens relationships, and increases intimacy with God. Dr. Ray Anderson calls the book "stunning and stimulating; recommended as required reading here at Fuller Theological Seminary." Theologian Gabriel Fackre writes: “Thank you, Dan and Kate Montgomery, for this remarkable mating of theology and psychology.”

How often have we told others to be 'like Jesus', but outside of praying, witnessing, fellowship, and reading more Scripture we felt a little clueless on how to make progress? Compass Psychotheology brings it home. If you want to grow more Christlike and teach others to do the same, don't go another day without this book! Raymond D. Anderson, Ph.D., M.Th, LPCC, LADAC
Compass Psychotheology is a must read for mental health workers, pastors, and spiritual directors who want to help people develop healthy personalities and fulfilling relationships. The book provides strong self-help principles for interested lay readers. I recommend it unequivocally!
"A bridge-building effort to bring together the concerns of modern psychotherapy with the historical Trinitarian faith: deserves critical examination." --Donald G. Bloesch, Ph.D., Professor of Theology Emeritus, DUBUQUE THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY "An enjoyable, useful, growing experience." --Rev. Gaylord Noyce, Professor of Pastoral Theology Emeritus, YALE DIVINITY SCHOOL "Dan Montgomery's Christian personality theology is innovative and biblically sound." --Gordon D. Fee, Ph.D., Professor of New Testament Studies Emeritus, REGENT COLLEGE "Fascinating. Concise. Compass Psychotheology presents a dynamic paradigm for understanding the human predicament, while at the same time outlining a strategy leading to growth. A thoughtful study based on a strong commitment to the authority of Scripture with a recognition that a personal, redemptive, actualizing relationship with the Triune God is essential for wholeness." --Ray Pendleton, Ph.D., Professor of... More > Pastoral Care & Counseling, GORDON-CONWELL THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY "In Compass Psychotheology we finally have a bridge that connects personality theory with Trinitarian faith. The Montgomery perspective eliminates the gap between theologians and clinicians, between conservatives and liberals, evangelicals and Pentecostals. All can use this model for growth toward individual wholeness, toward respectful and edifying communities, and deeper intimacy with God." --Linda Marten, Ph.D., Department of Biblical Counseling, DALLAS THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY "Dan and Kate Montgomery do not attempt to integrate psychology and theology by beginning with a state of disintegration and attempting to create a synthesis or a state of collaboration between the two disciplines. Rather, Compass Psychotheology begins with a model of human wholism based on the ontological intimacy that God intended by endowing humans with personal being that reflects the divine image. This is a stunning and stimulating contribution to the literature on integration." --Ray S. Anderson, Ph.D., Senior Professor of Theology & Ministry, FULLER THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY “Compass Psychotheology offers a fascinating and creative perspective on how psychology and theology are necessary partners in understanding human nature, its vulnerabilities and the possibilities for transformation. The book is firmly rooted in a biblical and Trinitarian understanding and as such will have special appeal to professional Christian counselors and pastors. Most importantly, Compass Psychotheology provides a conceptual framework for assessing brokenness and a resource for healing.” --Lallene J. Rector, Ph.D., Dean, GARRETT-EVANGELICAL THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY< Less
