Examined the relationship of intrinsic, extrinsic, and quest religious orientations to religious and nonreligious coping with a significant negative life event in 538 mainstream Christian church members. As predicted, each orientation was associated with a different way of coping with specific life problems. When coupled with the results from the first in this series of studies conducted by K. Pargament et al (see record 1991-21304-001), these findings suggest that religious coping efforts might bridge the general religious orientation of the individual to the outcomes of critical life events. They point to the importance of the workings of religion in specific life situations. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
