    Those issues sound pretty damn paramount to me! If any of your old conquests come my way I'll tell them to PM you :SoMuchWin:

    I just downloaded and read the paper. Good stuff. Speaking as someone who has also published in the psychology of religion literature, THANK YOU for striking another blow against unidimensional operationalizations of religion! The worst (and I'm pacing back and forth in my office snarling while typing this) are the studies that use single-item measures, and then act as if their results mean anything! Argh!

    I talk about Pargament and religious coping in some of my lectures, as well, focusing on the idea of there being healthy and unhealthy forms of religious coping. I think I'll add your study to that material, since it flows well with the existing literature on the topic.

    The following is not a criticism, just pointing in a couple of directions that I didn't see in your study: Looking at reactions to life crises, have you gotten into the work of Julie Exline? (faculty website: http://psychology.case.edu/faculty/exline_pubs.html , scroll down to "Religious and Spiritual Struggles") I find her work on crises as opportunities either for a loss of faith or a deepening and maturation of faith to be useful. (I even worked it into a geek-out over Firefly: http://cheesewearingtheology.com/201...y-of-religion/ ) And I can't talk about a meaning-oriented approach to the psychology of religion without mentioning my buddy Paul Wong ( http://meaning.ca/ ) and his work on death-acceptance and existential positive psychology.

    Are you still in Richmond? I've been invited to speak at a conference in Virginia Beach this fall.

    Hardly anyone is. I don't think I've ever read a scientific article that flowed.

    Sun of Thunder,

    Pleasure to make your acquaintance, I'm glad you enjoyed the article. I'll be running numbers for our follow-up with a larger sample over the next 2-3 weeks and would be happy to send you any interesting results we have. We're hoping that we replicate the pattern in the factor analysis so that we can say with more confidence "these are the religious coping strategies that bereaved college students seem to find the most useful."

    I was not aware of Dr. Exline's work but I'll have to give it a read and add it to the conculsion of our next paper. My advisor may be aware of her work. I am vaguely aware of Dr. Wong. We tend to take essentially a Park and Folkman (1997) approach to meaning thus far, but his organization looks worth looking into. It is possible that my advisor might be attending that conference that you mentioned. Feel free to PM me if you'd like to chat further!

    Death to oversimplified measures of religious experience!
