The Exploration of the Inner World
This landmark first book by Anton T. Boisen, originally published in 1936, established his reputation as both the visionary founder of the clinical pastoral movement and a leading figure in the psychology of religion. This edition includes a brand new foreword by J. Harold Ellens, introduction by Robert Charles Powell and afterword by Pamela Cooper White.
