Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of authors' biography that occur in the book titled Research in the Social Scientific Study of Religion . This study explored the contribution of intra- and interpersonal openness to adolescent Religiosity and spirituality (R/S) development, and the social contexts that engender it. The qualitative data from this study suggest that R/S socialization is facilitated by open and flexible conversations and experiences within the social contexts most important in an adolescent's life, family and friends, with the concomitant time and space to contemplate the issues that drive and result from such interactions. This openness allows for a willingness to explore spiritual issues, and an encouragement of flexibility in how one assigns meaning and interprets experience and tradition from a spiritual or religious perspective.

Keywords: Religiosity and spirituality (R/S) development; scientific study
