Editorial Reviews

"Taken as a whole, this anthology is highly illuminating. Despite its size, it is eminently readable. It is detailed, well structured, and well argued, compiled by editors who "know their stuff". However, a great strength also lies in the fact that it can be "dipped" into and used as a tool for examining particular issues or for exploring interesting avenues. It is thought-provoking and provides the reader with options for further reading and research. Although the intention of the volume is ambitious, it provides both the benefits of an edited collection as well as well-argued analysis. It is an important, innovative work that is very timely." Journal of Contemporary Religion
