The next section in Psychology Through the Eyes of Faith addresses human development and encompasses chapters 7-9. Chapter 7 addresses child development and paradoxes of faith, while Chapter 8 looks at environmental (especially parental) influences and genetic influces on human development. The final chapter in this section addresses adolescence and identity formation, questions of intimacy during young adulthood, and generativity in later adult life. The authors close with the question of which metaphor resonates more with the reader: life as a journey or life as a story. Which resonates more with you and why?
