Editors: Michael T. Evans and Emma D. Walker
Book Description:
There has been a remarkable amount of popular and professional interest in the relationship between spirituality, religion, psychology, and health in recent years. This book begins with the importance of a critical methodology when studying the relationship between religion and psychology. Among the many topics presented is a study on the experience of contemporary peacekeepers faced with existential questions about life, death, being and the searching for meaning. Other chapters explore the relationship of holistic healing and personal development, recovery from trauma and spirituality, spirituality and a woman’s ability to deal with infertility, and the relationship between a person's health and their ability to forgive.
