Vice President of Institutional Development and Chair of the Biblical Counseling and Discipleship Department at Crossroads Bible College in Indianapolis, Dr. Robert W. Kellemen offers a condensed and summarized outline of the Emotional Intelligence material in his book titled Soul Physicians: A Theology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction. A mixture of theology and practical psychology, the text explores emotional skills, emotions in relationship to God and others, and emotions as expressed through mind and body. Helpful practical tools include an Emotional Intelligence self-assessment, five tools for an Emotional Intelligence toolbox, and a dozen Emotional Intelligence lesson plans for use in the congregation or small group. This resource will be most helpful to congregational leaders in a Jewish or Christian context.
