The Impact of the Inner-child on Adult Believing
This article describes a recent research project that has examined the influence of childhood faith on adult faith. It traces both the historic formulation of faith in the original child and the reworking of that faith through subsequent reflection and the reworking of memory. The key interest is to identify how the inner-child is resourceful to faith development, whilst noting that it can lead faith into a dysfunctional stage. The article describes how the data was collected using two separate study groups. It then considers four themes arising from the data, namely memory, nurture, the god-object and institutional religion.
