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. This issue is addressed by presenting a conceptual model that focuses on the needs that are satisfied by religion. In the process, an effort is made to show how this conceptual scheme can be used to add greater coherence to the field.
