The Tenth Leper
Rosemead School of Psychology
I (Sorenson, 1996c) took inspiration from John Bunyan's (1678/1969) The Pilgrim's Progress and imagined the ten lepers in Luke 17 as invented, allegorical characters who represent different but common responses to the notion that integration is something indivisbly, irreducibly, and fundamentally personal. I have organized the lepers into four “colonies,” addressing in a previous article the first two, which I named “No Need” and “No Good.” In the present article I address the remaining two colonies, which I have named “No Way” and “No Other Way.” In conclusion I offer five recommendations for graduate and undergraduate curricula at Christian seminaries and universities which seek to integrate psychology into their programs.
