Emotions & The Bible: Introductory Bibliography (Denver Seminary, 2015)

“Recent research in philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience has demonstrated that emotions are not, as we once thought, irrational, animalistic impulses to be suppressed and ignored. Instead, emotions are rich, cognitive phenomena essential to human health and the moral life. Appropriating such insight in their own work, dozens of biblical scholars and theologians have shown a recent surge of interest in the topic. This bibliography seeks to make the surprisingly large body of resultant literature accessible to a broader audience. It is intended not only to stimulate academic research in biblical studies and theology more generally, but also to aid preachers, teachers, counselors, and translators in their own work and ministry”.
