The vast amount that has been written about religion and psychology in the past and the differing ways in which the subject has been explored might suggest that there is little need for anyone, let alone one who is essentially a practitioner rather than a professional academic, to write more. It could be that what appears to me to be a current dearth of material on the subject is an indication that little more needs to be said. My only justification for offering a further contribution to this debate is that the dearth may suggest the need for a significantly different emphasis; one that can make a meaningful contribution. The distinctive emphasis in what follows is the methodology used, and the way in which this methodology shapes the subject matter.
