Klappentext
How to analyze delusional thinking? Foundational theology can give a contribution to understanding religious delusions as a search for meaning. This book explores how a religious delusion can be acknowledged as a religious experience. In addition, the book presents a detailed case-study of the life of Presbyterian minister Anton T. Boisen (1876-1965), his crises and the religious delusion that brought him to the brink of the abyss after the trauma he experienced during World War I.

Delusion is seen as a way of experiencing and speaking in which rationality seems to be lost and, at the same time, as a construction to prevent further defragmentation of the personality.

Dr. Cor Arends (1953) is a clinical pastor working in a psychiatric clinic at GGZcentraal Amersfoort.
