Editorial Reviews

"Finally, it should be pointed out that the book is well presented, with a wealth of interesting primary sources and secondary literature discussed. . . At any rate, the book should contribute to the ongoing debate between religionists and reductionists within our field."  (Numen, 1 May 2015)

"Summing Up: Recommended.  Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty."  (Choice, 1 January 2013)
