305 - Kutter Callaway on Why Theology and Psychology Work Well Together, Practicalities of Theology and Spiritual Applications Psychology in Recovery
Kutter Callaway (PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) is associate professor of theology and culture at Fuller Theological Seminary and Co-Director of Reel Spirituality. He is the author of several books including Theology For Psychology & Counseling. Prior to teaching at Fuller, Callaway served in pastoral ministry for nearly a decade, focusing primarily on young and emerging adults.
In today's interview, Kutter and Sathiya discuss why scientific research is not absolute, a healthy way for integrating theology and academia, and why good psychology will always enhance one's theology and vice versa. The interview ends with a segment where Sathiya poses a commonplace term like "community" and Kutter explains the concept through both a theological lens and then a psychological lens.
This episode will provide you with a deeper understanding of why many practices in psychology have spiritual significance and some guidance on how to properly perceive academic research in a society that supremely values it.
