Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(4), 291-300. The reviewer states that this book (see record 1996-98818-000) bring the theories surrounding the psychology of religion into one volume, hoping that discipline will become more theory-based and coherent. This text offers little indication that experimentation will become widely used in the psychology of religion. Although religious belief often distorts empirical studies, researchers with religious convictions have occasionally shown that some psychological measures contain subtle biases against believers. As a whole, the discipline is probably as capable of self-correction for the biases of its researchers as is any other subdiscipline in psychology.
