Abstract:

In the first half of this century psychologists and religious thinkers engaged in almost constant warfare over the value of religious belief in human life. Freud declared that religions were mass delusions, and many other psychologists were equally critical. For their part, theologians charged that psychology reduced God to a psychic phenomenon. The last three decades, however, have brought a more irenic spirit to the dialogue, and this volume catalogs much of that new understanding. The readings gathered here juxtapose ideas in areas of concern common to both groups: human development in general, the stages of faith and moral development, guilt, prayer, spiritual growth, and religion as a factor pf psychological health.
