Resonances and reservations between the Bible and Positive Psychology

The field of positive psychology (PP), the scientific study of well-being, is a relatively new discipline that has generated considerable interest in both acadamia and general public. Workplaces, schools, healthcare, and public policy and more are talking about how to incorporate well-being into policies and actions. Constructs such as love, spirituality, gratitude, and hope were previously ignored by science, but now are being empirically studied. Notably, many of the concepts of the field return to Biblical principles. This paper explores PP from a Biblical perspective.
