Resumen

El artículo se propone presentar la contribución de los estudios sobre Religious coping a la teología empírica y a la teología en general. A través de la vía de inducción analítica ofrece tres lecturas teológicas de los datos obtenidos en una investigación previa sobre Religious coping en adolescentes españoles: antropológica, soteriológica y de teología práctica. Su objetivo es mostrar cómo la teología puede obtener de los procedimientos de análisis empírico un conocimiento que ayude a comprender mejor la dinámica de las creencias/experiencia religiosa de los adolescentes/jóvenes actuales. El resultado es un balance sobre la dinámica/funciones del afrontamiento religioso en su vertiente psicoterapéutica con aportaciones a la teología pastoral.

Abstract: This article aims to present the contribution of the studies on Religious coping to empirical theology and general theology. By means of analytic induction, it offers three theological readings of the data obtained in a previous research on Religious coping in Spanish adolescents: anthropological, soteriological and practical theology. Its purpose is to show how theology can obtain, from a procedure based in empirical analysis, a knowledge which helps to better understand the dynamic of the current adolescents/young people's beliefs/religious experience. The result is an assessment of the religious coping dynamic/functions in its psychotherapeutic aspect with contributions to the pastoral theology.
