The Boisen Books Project

OlderBoisenThe major writings of Anton T. Boisen, visionary founder of the clinical pastoral care, counseling and psychotherapy movement, and of clinical pastoral training and education, have long been out of print. As a result, generations of chaplains and others have nearly lost touch with the life, vision and legacy of this seminal figure in their own field.

The Boisen Books Project will reintroduce Boisen to a new generation in the 21st century. As relevant today as when they were first published, Boisen’s three major books will appear, one-a-year, beginning in Spring 2015, marking the 50th anniversary of his death in 1965.

Boisen’s acclaimed first book The Exploration of the Inner World  (1936) will be back in print in 2015, his autobiography Out of the Depths (1960) in 2016, and his sociological and psychological study Religion in Crisis and Custom (1945) in 2017.

The new editions will each include a new Introduction by renowned historian of the pastoral care movement and psychiatrist Robert Charles Powell, MD, PhD, as well as a new Foreword and Afterword to each book written by leading writers in the field today.
