Title
Carl Rogers and the Christian Virtues
Abstract

This article is a conceptual evaluation of the therapeutic theory and practice of Carl Rogers, using as critical vantage point the personality theory suggested in the various New Testament virtue-concepts. The topics discussed are Rogers'€™ concept of the self, the power of unconditional positive regard, integrity as congruence, the absence of transcendence in Rogers'€™ thought, and Rogers'€™ concept of autonomy. The verdict is mixed: Features compatible with Christian psychology and useful in the formation of the Christian virtues are discerned, but the limits of this usefulness are delineated.
