Title: A QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF GOD ATTACHMENT 
AND THE CHRISTIAN FAITH AND LIFE AMONG 
EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS
Author: Hardin, Gary Todd
Advisor: Johnson, Eric L.
Abstract: This pilot study explored the possible relationships between attachment to God and the Christian faith and life among a small sample of evangelical Christians. A quantitative analysis was performed on Christian adults (N=189) in local churches in the southeastern region of the United States. The study examined the relationships between attachment to God, awareness of the value of sin-beliefs, beliefs about sin, and levels of religious defensiveness. The project used correlational and stepwise regression analyses. The study found there was a significant negative variance between avoidance of intimacy with God, anxiety over abandonment by God, avoidance of legalism and religious defensiveness. Implications for Christian psychology and pastoral ministry were also discussed.
