Finances, Religion, and the FAAR Model: How Religion Exacerbates and Alleviates Financial Stress
Finance, religion, financial stress
Previous research suggests that the association between religion and financial stress is complicated—some studies have found that religion exacerbates financial stress (Gutierrez et al., 2017), while others have found that religion alleviates financial stress (Bradshaw & Ellison, 2010). Drawing upon interviews of 172 religious parents and religious leaders in Ireland and the United Kingdom, the purpose of this study is to better understand the relationship between religion and financial stress, and to identify potential processes and mechanisms behind this relationship.
