Ephraim Shapiro and Chen Sharony

This chapter explains the correlation of religious practice and social capital as well as the concepts of religious capital. The remarkable benefits of religious practices are well documented here. Reduced mortality rates, better mental health, health status, and better social capital are all gains of religious practice. The authors report that social capital in American towns is primarily that which is associated with places of worship. They also define religious capital and demonstrate that it too has healthful effects.
