`Intriguing philosophical questions are raised about the nature of religion and the qualities needed for studying it.' - Times Higher Education Supplement
`Excellent book ... remarkably successful, impressive as much for the sheer scale of the undertaking as for its consistent standard of analysis. It is a fine achievement which will serve both as a very suitable textbook for students and a reliable guide to the state of scholarship in the History and Study of Religions.' - Heythrop Journal

Review:

`Providing an `aid to the disinterested study of religion' offered `in the spirit of detachment and disinterestedness' ... interesting and informative' - Reference Reviews

`Intriguing philosophical questions are raised about the nature of religion and the qualities needed for studying it.' - Times Higher Education Supplement

`In this multi-racial and multi-religioned society of today one might almost say that this weighty volume should be available for ready reference in every home where concern and respect for the religious beliefs of the neighbours is important ... a sympathetic, respectful and dignified account of the many religions found today round every corner in Britain ... A fascinating book.' - Henry Wansbrough

`This outstanding `series of interlinked essays' has a great deal of information not easily available elsewhere on the history and present state of religion ... in many countries ... a work for students and libraries, and it will be an irreplaceable source of reference for many years to come.' - Geoffrey Parrinder, Religious Studies

`Excellent book ... remarkably successful, impressive as much for the sheer scale of the undertaking as for its consistent standard of analysis. It is a fine achievement which will serve both as a very suitable textbook for students and a reliable guide to the state of scholarship in the History and Study of Religions.' - Heythrop Journal
