Faculty: Dr. Randy L. Scraper (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
The purpose of this course is to acquaint the student with the ways in which Viktor Frankl’s Logotherapy and Logo philosophy interact with Christian Spiritual Formation. The student will learn how Franklian psychology provides one axis of a meaning matrix that helps pastors and educators better understand Christian spiritual maturity. The primary texts expose Dr. Frankl’s mature thinking on the subjects of ultimate meaning and how his life and work continue to benefit a meaningful understanding of the human spirit. Dr. Scraper’s book defines and describes the origination and use of a meaning matrix that includes Franklian psychology in better understanding Christian spiritual maturity.
