PSYCHOLOGY One of the main things that we have to realize about Psychology, is that is ever changing. There is always a new theory, or article, or idea. Psychology is always growing and expanding in its views, ideas, theories and tolerances. “Psychology is a social science, and like all sciences, it moves quiet quickly. The studies that were current in the 1996 are now old, maybe even ancient. The forgiveness chapter, for example, was written without the benefit of more that one thousand scientific articles on forgiveness published since this book was first released. In each on the updates, I will introduce readers to some of the newer trends in psychology research,” (Johnson, Introduction).

CHRISTIANITY “Christianity is much more than theology; its is an encounter with Christ that redeems and reorients human lives…it is less a system of thought than it is a commitment to follow God with heart and soul and mind that lays claim to all of life,” (Entwistle, pg. 3).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
