 While the scientific community has experienced a resurgence in the idea that there are important linkages between religion and family life and religion and health outcomes, this study is still in its early stages, scattered across multiple disciplines, and of uneven quality. To date, no book has featured both reviews of the literature and new empirical findings. Religion, Families, and Health fills this void by bringing together leading social scientists who provide a theoretically rich, methodologically rigorous, and exciting glimpse into a fascinating social institution that continues to be extremely important in the lives of Americans
