Overview of article:
A psychological perspective on god-belief as a source of well-being and meaning
Authors: E. Karen van der Merwe, Chrizanne van Eeden, Hans J.M. van Deventer
This article reports on a qualitative exploration of the well-being and meaning that second- and third-generation Christians from an African context experience because of their integration of religion in their life and being.
A textured, integrated tapestry is created of the participants’
understanding of God (God-concept), experience of their relationship with God (God-image) and understanding of life as coloured by their belief systems. The contribution of their God-belief to their sense of meaning and psychological well-being frames the tapestry of this article.
