Organization and critique of empirical research on the relationship between religion and health is a monumental task. It is, however, important and eminently useful given the universality of religion in our lives and its influence on our behavior.
The authors, well-regarded researchers in this maturing field, bring to their task a conviction that religion and spirituality generally have positive effects on health. Their analysis of more than 1200 studies and 400 reviews is meticulous and balanced.
