Resumen

VAN DER MERWE, E. Karen; VAN EEDEN, Chrizanne  y  VAN DEVENTER, Hans J.M.. A psychological perspective on god-belief as a source of well-being and meaning. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2010, vol.66, n.1, pp. 00-00. ISSN 2072-8050.

This article reports on a qualitative exploration of the well-being and meaning that second- and third-generation Christians from an African context experience because of their integration of religion in their life and being. A textured, integrated tapestry is created of the participants' understanding of God (God-concept), experience of their relationship with God (God-image) and understanding of life as coloured by their belief systems. The contribution of their God-belief to their sense of meaning and psychological well-being frames the tapestry of this article.

Palabras clave : God-image; God-concept; African religion; Christian religion; meaning; psychological well-being.
