"Smith's style reflects his subject; he is by turns a mystic sage, a poet, and above all a philosopher."
-- Publishers Weekly
"The single best introduction to religion ever written. The book is monumental."
"A brilliant and creative piece of work."
-- Niels Nielsen, Rice University
"By far the best book on 'the primordial tradition' that I know."

Beautifully written. The joy is that I find it so relevant in so many places, from 'Introduction to Religion' to advanced courses in 'Philosophy of Religion.'
