This is the only newly revised book on the market to target the mid-level undergraduate student. Providing a well-balanced and thorough look at the psychological literature, this book is meant to be “an invitation to the psychology of religion, not an encyclopedia of it,” and therefore, particular emphasis has been placed on writing style as well as scholarship.
A revised edition of the survey text examining research in the psychology of religion. Paloutzian (Westmount College) briefly outlines the major themes in the field: theoretical developments; religious development in children, adolescents, and adults; religious attitudes and behaviors; psychopathology, and normal religious experience in definitions of the Self. Each section includes discussion questions and projects related to the subject matter. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
