    Relationships Between Religious Orientations and Flow Experiences: An Exploratory Study.Scott R. Brown & Alida S. Westman - 2008 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion / Archiv für Religionspychologie 30 (1):235-240.
    A convenience sample of 171 students answered a questionnaire indicating their religious orientations and the frequency and intensity of their flow experiences . Flow experiences are similar to athletes' experiences of "being in the zone." Intrinsics live by their religion, and Intrinsic religiosity was associated with fewer flow experiences in everyday activities.Extrinsics want the benefits of belonging. Extrinsic religiosity correlated with less intense flow experiences, and these experiences were more frequent during public religious gatherings than private prayer or meditation.

    Religiosity Scales: What Are We Measuring in Whom?Marsha Cutting & Michelle Walsh - 2008 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion / Archiv für Religionspychologie 30 (1):137-153.
    At least 177 scales are available to researchers who want to measure religiosity, but questions exist as to exactly what these scales are measuring and in whom they are measuring it. A review of these scales found a lack items designed to measure ethical action in society or the world as a prophetic response to the experience of the divine. Instead, the vast majority of scales focus on internal experiences and beliefs or institutional relationships. A review of scale norm groups (...)

    Whither the Roots? Achieving Conceptual Depth in Psychology of Religion.Peter C. Hill & Nicholas J. S. Gibson - 2008 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion / Archiv für Religionspychologie 30 (1):19-35.
    Should psychology of religion undergo a disciplinary renaissance and, if so, what might it look like? In this paper we explore that question by discussing the benefits of a better grounding of the field within mid-level theories from general psychology that provide it with greater conceptual depth. Such discussion will focus on three already existing and variously productive lines of research as case studies: attribution processes, attachment styles, and religious coping. These case studies represent lines of research at three developmental (...)

    Exploring the Relationship between Schizotypal Personality Traits and Religious Attitude in an International Muslim Sample.Jennifer Johnstone & Niko Tiliopoulos - 2008 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion / Archiv für Religionspychologie 30 (1):241-253.
    The study explored the nature of the relationship between schizotypal personality traits and attitude of Muslims towards their faith. A total of 114 adult Muslims from eighteen countries responded to the Sahin-Francis scale of Attitude towards Islam, the Schizotypal Personality Questionnaire Brief, the short version of the Eysenck Lie scale, and a number of external indicators and religious practices. Attitude towards Islam, frequency of prayer and Mosque attendance had a relatively strong positive relationship with each other, while these religious characteristics (...)

    Measuring the Unmeasurable by Ticking Boxes and Opening Pandora's Box? Mixed Methods Research as a Useful Tool for Investigating Exceptional and Spiritual Experiences.Niko Kohls, Anna Hack & Harald Walach - 2008 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion / Archiv für Religionspychologie 30 (1):155-187.
    A monomethod bias still prevails in the psychology of religion, with the developing field studying the relationship between religiosity, spirituality and health being almost completely dominated by questionnaire research. This comes as a surprise, because the experiential side of religion, spirituality, can by definition be regarded as inner and private experiences of transcendence that have frequently been described as being of utmost importance. At first glance, from this perspective, standardized questionnaire scales appear to be inappropriate for “measuring the unmeasurable”. Until (...)

    Quo Vadis Psychology of Religion? Introduction to the Special Section.Helmut K. Reich & Peter C. Hill - 2008 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion / Archiv für Religionspychologie 30 (1):5-18.
    After a brief review of the history of the psychology of religion and its nature, we introduce this special section by presenting various themes of ongoing research and pointing out differentially the desirability of continued efforts in these areas. We then assess the field, its growth, increased interdisciplinary opportunities, lesser marginalization, and improved research methodology but also the challenge of arriving at theoretical coherence, studying all types of religious and spiritual understanding and experience, and researching the richness and complexity of (...)
