Publisher Description

As we look back over the articles, comments, and replies of this special issue, we are struck by two themes that appear to garner the most agreement among the various authors and involve the most important implications for the psychology of religion. The first theme is the need to respect the unique worldviews of today's religions and treat them as equal partners in dialogue. Too often, we believe, the naturalism and scientism of psychology are viewed as neutral discourses and given a higher status. The second theme follows from the first-the need for a pluralism of methods to help level the research playing field and formalize the respect of religious worldviews. Some pluralism is already occurring with the advent of qualitative methods, but we envision an even broader pluralism that is open to theism. Space limitations allow only a brief description of each theme here. Respecting a Religious Worldview
