Keeping up with the rapidly growing research base, the leading graduate-level psychology of religion text is now in a fully updated fifth edition.

It takes a balanced, empirically driven approach to understanding the role of religion in individual functioning and social behavior.

Integrating research on numerous different faith traditions, the book addresses the quest for meaning; links between religion and biology; religious thought, belief, and behavior across the lifespan; experiential dimensions of religion and spirituality; the social psychology of religious organizations; and connections to coping, adjustment, and mental disorder.

Chapter-opening quotations and topical research boxes enhance the readability of this highly instructive text.
