"What a delight! It is a rare treat indeed to find an analytic theorist who writes with such thoughtful purpose and conviction about dark, complex, and soulful topics." (J Relig Health, 2009) "I would recommend this collection of essays to analysts, students of religious studies who are interested in psychoanalysis and anyone else ?" (International Journal of Psychoanalysis, April 2006)
