dc.description.abstractThe present study was designed to explore the link between religiosity and its relationship between self-esteem, perceived stress and general health. A sample of 100 undergraduate psychology students completed the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Christianity (Francis & Stubbs, 1987) together with a self-esteem (Rosenberg, 1965), perceived stress (Cohen et al, 1983) and general health questionnaire (Goldberg, 1992). The data demonstrates that a positive attitude toward Christianity is associated with a higher level of self-esteem, and lower levels of perceived stress and general psychological ill health. These findings support those of previous studies. Author keywords: Religiosity, self-esteem, perceived stress, general health, undergraduate college studentsen
