It is with great pleasure that I read this very erudite and yet beautifully written book. This journey into the modern world of cognitive psychology, accompanied all along by the writings of the church fathers, introduces us to two universes that crisscross and yet do not dissolve into each other. Father Alexis did not embark on this journey for purely theoretical reasons, although he distills theories very nimbly. He is a Christian theologian who wants to use both the resources of his tradition and those of cognitive psychology to make more effective the task of caring for those who suffer. His considerable learning, not least in his detailed exposition of Aaron Beck’s thought, remains in the service of his calling.
