Title
Urban Psychology and Spirituality
Abstract

One area in which the relationship between psychology and theology finds practical expression is that of Christian spirituality. A little-explored but promising branch of psychology for such study is that of environmental psychology. This article examines the ability of models of the human based on urban psychology to support the demands of the Christian life. The models so utilized are those of the human being as territorial animal, passive sensor, and preference holder. The implications of such models for Christian spirituality are explored, and in turn, these models are evaluated in terms of the commitment warranted by the Christian life, particularly by the practice of compassion.
