    Augustine's Confessions: The story of a divided self and the process of its unification.Donald Capps - 2007 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 29 (1):127-150.
    The goals of this paper are twofold.

    Jesus' encounter with two “troubled” adolescents exposes the distance between the generations resulting from the anxieties their conflicts provoke. As a “surrogate” father, Jesus brings a nonanxious presence that heals and empowers these young people.

    James and Dewey on Belief and Experience.Donald Capps & John M. Capps (eds.) - 2004 - University of Illinois Press.
    Donald Capps and John Capps's James and Dewey on Belief and Experience juxtaposes the key writings of two philosophical superstars. As fathers of Pragmatism, America's unique contribution to world philosophy, their work has been enormously influential, and remains essential to any understanding of American intellectual history. In these essays, you'll find William James deeply embroiled in debates between religion and science. Combining philosophical charity with logical clarity, he defended the validity of religious experience against crass forms of scientism. Dewey identified (...)

    The religious life: the insights of William James.Donald Capps - 2015 - Eugene, Oregon: Cascade Books.
