This book is an examination of the thinking, personality, and development processes as well as clinical concerns of clients who are members of particular religious groups. Religious upbringing influences people in ways that are difficult or impossible to describe and this book provides a "window on their world," as it were. In addition, it examines possible future religious development as spiritualism begins to replace institutional religion and as religious choice replaces religious constraint. This book will be helpful to all therapists who want to understand how religious people "really think."
