     No man is an Island, intire of itselfe; every man is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a Clod bee washed away by the sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or thine own were: any man's death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.

John Donne                                          
(Devotions upon Emergent Occasions)

     THE PURPOSE OF this Paper is to show that modern research in the fields of psychology, genetics, and anthropology, has much to say that throws light upon the Christian view of man as a sinner and as a saint. It also serves to underline man's basic need for salvation, and God's completely realistic answer to that need.
     For the sake of simplicity, the concept "soul" has been equated with the concept "personality," an equation which is not strictly in order, but which makes it possible to deal with the subject within reasonable compass. While this treatment lacks depth, it is more or less comprehensive, and taken in conjunction with the bibliography could possibly serve as the basis of a series of lectures or studies of Christian personality development.
