Synopsis:
Conceived as a way of bringing the study of religion closer to mainstream psychology, this issue touches on a remarkable range of psychological phenomena, including coping with stress, physical health, self-deception, consistency and rationalization, attachment, memory and distortion, prejudice, violence, love, sexuality, and attitude change. The authors also deal with social support, interpretation and meaning, authority and power, ethnicity, emotions and emotional intelligence, depression, self-understanding, time, memory, uncertainty, happiness, goals, hope, and cultural differences. The study of religion can potentially enrich studies of all these issues, as well as being enriched by them.
