Overview

Can psychology explain religious behavior? This book explores the thinking of eight pioneers of religious psychology, including Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. Fuller presents the theories of these seminal figures in a clear, straightforward way, and also examines the limits of psychological explanations of religion. He concludes the book by exploring the contributions to religion by some prominent recent figures in psychology such as Ana-Maria Rizzuto, Paul W. Pruyser, and Bernard Spilka. Praise for the latest edition of Psychology and Religion: "Professor Fuller has made a valuable contribution to students of psychology and religion. He has brought together in a single volume eight of the most important thinkers in their field. By presenting the views of these seminal figures in a cogent, straightforward manner and with scholarly faithfulness to their ideas, Fuller has eased the task of exploring an extremely challenging area. He is to be commended for his impressive effort." -Steven M. Rosen, The College of Staten Island

David M. Wulff
I find this work to be an authoritative, richly detailed, and highly readable exposition of the writings of leading classic and contemporary contributors to the psychology of religion.
Phyllis Chesater
Dr. Andrew Fuller's book, Psychology and Religion is thoughtful, useful, serious, and in the Grand Tradition. Teachers and students of Religion, Philosophy, Ethics and Psychology will find it both illuminating and comprehensive.
Stanley Krippner Ph.D
This is a unique vehicle for the presentation of psychological approaches to the study of religious experience and makes an eloquent case that there are many ways for individuals and groups to be religious. In humanity's search for the ultimate meaning, no topics are as crucial as those so clearly presented in this book.
