Title
A Brief History of Psychology and Missions in JPT: Looking Back, Around, and Forward
Abstract

Beginning in 1983, the Journal of Psychology and Theology has published four special editions devoted to the topic of psychology and missions; on average, these issues were released at a rate of two per decade (i.e., 1983, 1987, 1993, and 1999). After a 17-year hiatus, this fifth psychology and missions special edition of JPT provides an opportunity to reflect on what we have learned thus far through the almost 70 articles published in JPT since 1973 on the interrelationship of psychological and theological concepts—all to the fulfillment of Christ’s command to make disciples of all nations. To do so, we will follow Hall & Schram’s (1999) outline in their introductory article to the fourth special edition: looking back to the past to consolidate gains, looking around to the present to note current trends, and looking forward to the future to identify gaps.
