Abstract:

"Dr, Ligon has pioneered in experiments which use human behavior as data--in a religious frame of reference. His previous books on this subject have so interested many educators that this newest book deserves the widest possible hearing. It tells the complete story of research, statistical method, testing, and constant revisions and growth of the Character Research Project. In an age which is broadly scientific it is fitting that religious and character education research should utilize scientific techniques. Because our growth in moral and spiritual values has lagged dangerously behind our advances in technology. Dr. Ligon has considered exploration of personality and social relationships a vital necessity. Making full use of scientific testing and measurement, he has developed sound techniques for enlisting the aid of such lay people as parents and teachers. The contributions of these co-scientists have led to observations and discoveries impossible without them. "The powerful new developments in experimental design used by the Union College Character Research Project have been basic to this study. Aided by effective team work throughout the country it has provided the Laboratory of Psychology at Union College with measurable data. "That information can now be used as tools by the intelligent layman. Avoiding technical terms. Dr. Ligon has put these tools within the reach of everyone who is concerned with religious faith and its application to attitudes, behavior, and potential power in human personality. They will be invaluable tools for professional scientists, educators, teachers, parents or even some of our more able youth"--Jacket. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved).
