Achieving Conceptual Depth in Psychology of Religion Peter C. Hill a) and Nicholas J. S. Gibson b) a) Rosemead School of Psychology, Biola University La Mirada, California, USA firstname.lastname@example.org b) Psychology and Religion Research Group, Faculty of Divinity University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK email@example.com Received: 19 July 2007; accepted: 8 December 2007 Summary 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. Th ese case studies represent lines of research at three developmental stages: 1) infancy , with little visible return but with signs of promise (attribution), 2) adolescence , with dividends already yielded but also with promise not yet fully realized (attachment), and 3) maturity , where a fruitful harvest has already been experienced
