      Abstract

      This thesis is a practical application of Bernard Lonergan's transcendental method of theological discovery and M. Shawn Copeland's work in theological anthropology to investigate the relationship between the doctrine of the Incarnation and human healing within the specific Human context of mental illness. This research proposes that an authentic, meaningful experience of Jesus Christ with the possibility for healing and reconciliation is possible for the twenty-first beleiver.
