Chapter Summary

This chapter looks at the effect of popular religious participation on religious beliefs. It starts with a presentation of assumption that popular religious participation might affect beliefs. It considers a traditional theological approach: religious practices affect people's faith. It then sketches a theoretical model that will guide the analyses of the effects of popular religious participation on the four sets of core Christian beliefs (beliefs about God, suffering, Jesus Christ and the church) that are researched, and our expectations about these effects are listed. Finally it reports the empirical outcome of regression analysis for each belief about God, suffering, Jesus Christ and the church as dependent variables, hence a total of 22 regression analyses.

Keywords: Christian; Church; human suffering; Jesus Christ; popular religious participation; religious beliefs
