Chapter Summary

In three Iranian samples, the brief Post-Critical Beliefs Scale is administered along with an array of psychological and religious measures. In efforts to explore the potential of the dialogical model, researchers administered Intrinsic, Extrinsic, and Quest Religious Orientation measures to both Iranian and Pakistani Muslim samples. These investigations yielded five most noteworthy kinds of observations. First, western measures produced meaningful patterns of results when used with Muslim samples. Second, these data supplied an empirical warrant for exploring conceptually noteworthy parallels between Muslim and non-Muslim understandings of religious faith. Third, western measures seemed to have at least some promise in clarifying possible ambiguities within Muslim conceptual frameworks. Fourth, examination of Muslim samples also presented opportunities for identifying possible inadequacies in western understandings of religion. Fifth and finally, use of the dialogical model was also associated with some success in identifying possible unique features of Muslim commitments.
