"This is the best book I've read since 2002. . . . I recommend it highly to all church libraries."--Church Libraries, Summer 2014
"This volume stands as proof for (religious) experience as a source of knowledge. Every Christian who wants to make sense of her or his faith needs to read this book. It is easily readable; although the topics are highly philosophical."--Joshua Iyadurai, Missiology, July 2015
"Mary Poplin's well-documented, insightful book delivers far more than is promised by its subtitle."--Jerry Ford, Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies, Vol. XXVIII, No. 1/2
