The Psychology of Religious Belief

Front Cover
Academic Press, 1987 - Religion - 260 pages
This book is concerned with empirical studies of religious belief, and the contexts within which they are to be understood. It also examines classical views of religion, its structures and parameters, the readiness for religion, and the reasons for accepting religious beliefs. While some knowledge of psychology is assumed, the book is designed to be more generally intelligible to the average reader.
