The book brings together theoretical and research perspectives of scholars who are looking for the right relationship between religiousness and spirituality. This argument is to serve as the basis for the introduction of the author’s Meaning Making Beliefs- Spirituality-Religiousness (MM B-S-R) and Threefold Nature of Spirituality (TNS) models, created as part of the author’s many years of research achievements. These points of view, referring to the studies of various researchers and using her own investigations, specify the psychological elements as well as hypothetical and researched mechanisms of spirituality, noting that they require further exploration. The whole is a proposal for a new approach to the concept of the spiritual sphere as a multi-factorial, multi-level phenomenon, involved in cooperation with the cognitive system and personality, which is important in the process of searching for the meaning in life as its behavioral consequences resulting from the attitude towards the sacred/a-sacred and life.
