Editorial Reviews

Dale C. Allison Jr.
"A splendid collection of essays by a distinguished group of scholars. It is without doubt the best survey of its subject now available."

Max Turner
"This is a thoroughly researched yet wonderfully accessible account of a regrettably ignored subject. Nicely detailed, yet profound and spiritually enriching, Into God's Presence is sure to become a significant resource for scholars and pastors alike."

Currents in Theology & Mission
"This is a useful book, clearly written in largely nontechnical language and so open to a wide readership. "
