Psychology, Religion, and Spirituality provides readers with a critical overview of what psychology tells us about religion and spirituality. It is concise without being simplistic, and the first such broad overview to be published for some years. Fraser Watts recognizes that 'religion' is complex and multi-faceted, taking different forms in different people and contexts. The book presents a broad view of psychology; whatever kind of psychology you are interested in, you will find it covered here, from biological to social, and from experimental to psychoanalytic. It focuses particularly on the varied concepts that psychologists have employed to make sense of religion and subjects them to critical examination. The book is also concerned with practical applications, helping those engaged in religious ministry. It will be of interest to undergraduates and general readers, as well as specialists in religious studies, psychology, and philosophy of religion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'In a reflective survey of psychology and religion, Fraser Watts, psychologist, theologian, and Anglican priest, has produced a remarkable book. It is a highly selective and focused assessment of what in numerous handbooks (all referenced by Watts) take hundreds, even thousands, of pages to survey. ... His book should be mandatory reading for psychologists currently involved in studying religion ...' Ralph W. Hood, Jr, The International Journal for the Psychology of Religion
