This volume provides an introduction to psychological interpretations of the Hebrew Bible and illustrates the method with the Garden of Eden story as a test case. It approaches the text from Freudian, Jungian, and developmental psychologies, comparing and contrasting the different methods and discussing their impact on hermeneutics. The work of Ricoeur is used to establish criteria for adequate interpretation. Genesis 3 presents a particularly fruitful text for psychological interpretation given its importance in modern Western culture. Its themes of sexuality, guilt, consciousness, and alienation are issues of great concern, not only for psychologists, but for society as a whole. Kille locates psychological criticism within the field of biblical studies generally and proposes a hermeneutical framework for describing and evaluating psychological approaches.
