Abraham Maslow

Maslow, material needs, and the gospel

"Apart from the value of Maslow’s particular understanding of human needs, and the various uses it has been put to in ministry as well as popular contexts, the challenge to rightly relate the temporal and the eternal, the material and the spiritual, is as old as the gospel itself.....the idea that there is some sense in which material needs must be met before spiritual needs can be properly addressed is, indeed, much older than Maslow." - Acton
