Religion and health: Making sense of a disheveled literature

Publication Abstract

Krause, Neal. 2011. "Religion and health: Making sense of a disheveled literature." Journal of Religion and Health, 50(1): 20-35.

A growing body of research suggests that religion may exert a beneficial effect on both physical and mental health. Unfortunately, the rapid growth of this literature has made it difficult to get a clear picture of what has been accomplished.

In the process, an effort is made to show how this conceptual scheme can be used to add greater coherence to the field.
