Psychology of Religion

Before God and with God, we live without God.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Every day is a holy day. For as long as humankind can collectively remember, the need to extend or reach out beyond itself to something greater has been as universal as the need for air, food, and shelter. Psychology of religion focuses on the human sources, behaviors and explanations, and expressions of that need.

The exploration of those sources, behaviors, explanations, and expression is my passion. This page is the beginning of that exploration. Like all web pages, it is under construction. Please email me with your questions or comments:
