S2 E17 – Elements of a Christian Worldview: Why Theology and Psychology Matter
In this episode, I argue that there are two things that we can do as writers to become better storytellers: Develop a greater understanding of human psychology, and become better theologians.
Both of these categories inform us as to the truth about our human experience. We have to be honest about those things we know to be true simply by virtue of the fact that we are human beings, and then we have to write our scenes in a way that reflects that truth and makes the audience connect because they it. But if you have good theology in addition to psychology, it helps you to reveal even deeper truths about the human experience.
