"Religion and the Human Future provides an excellent, well thought-out and well documented analysis of the current dilemma facing religions and religious people: the human dangers and inadequacies of hypertheism, with its exaggerated response to the challenge of modernity and over humanization, with its overly unreflective veneration for modernity." (Ethical Perspectives, July 2010)"This text sounds a clarion call to change the debate about the role of religion in human life. ... With limited endnotes and an engaging style, this carefully argued text mostly succeeds in its attempt to be accessible to a wider audience that could include upperlevel undergraduates." (Religious Studies Review, September 2009)
