Editorial Reviews

"There is no doubt this is a great book. . . the place to finishthis review is with admiration and respect. This book will shapekey debates for many years to come. It is a remarkably clearstatement of a program and vision, which stresses integrity,reason, and generosity. For this service to the church and theacademy, we should be deeply grateful." (Conversations in Religionand Theology, November 2010)

"Religion and the Human Future provides an excellent,well thought-out and well documented analysis of the currentdilemma facing religions and religious people: the human dangersand inadequacies of hypertheism, with its exaggerated response tothe challenge of modernity and over humanization, with its overlyunreflective veneration for modernity." (EthicalPerspectives, July 2010)"This text sounds a clarion call tochange the debate about the role of religion in human life. ...With limited endnotes and an engaging style, this carefully arguedtext mostly succeeds in its attempt to be accessible to a wideraudience that could include upperlevel undergraduates."(Religious Studies Review, September 2009)
