The Call of Wisdom: Adult Development Within Christian Community, Part II: Toward a Covenantal Constructivist Model of Post-Formal Development
Abstract

Certain teachings in the Bible point to the need for post-formal thought structures. However, Christian post-formal development has features that distinguish it from modern post-formal development, primarily because of the divine and social dimensions of thought-formation in the Christian framework. From the Christian standpoint, true human understanding is composed by humans but derived from God; it is reconstructive. True human understanding is also rooted in the context of the Christian'€™s communal, and personal, covenantal relation with God. Hence, the materials relevant to a Christian theory of early adult development point to a model termed "€œcovenantal constructivism."
