Jordan Peterson Biblical Psychology Series

This is a fabulous, psychological and scientific approach to interpreting the Bible and its stories through the lens of psychological evolution and clinical psychology. Dr. Peterson may be the only authoritative figure to have tried this. He also weaves in mythology and ancient thought and seems to invite us to think and explore along with him.

He draws his picture in front of us as an outsider looking in. The great philosophers, Plato, Aristotle, Freud, Nietzshe, Jung and others are woven into the these familiar stories as supporters, not detractors.
