5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant textbook, March 31, 2008

This review is from: Introducing Anthropology of Religion: Culture to the Ultimate (Hardcover)
I'm to teach an anthro of religion next year, and have been examining a good many textbooks. This one's my absolute favorite. The author is lucid (able to successfully explain V.W. Turner's approach inside a single paragraph), well-read, clear and tightly organized, yet chatty too.
Most introductory chapters are dreadful, this one's delightful. Plus the last few chapters -- on agnosticism, fundamentalism, violence, and new religious movements -- are unequaled elsewhere. Only later do you realize that there aren't any drawings or photos. Check it out.

Anthropology of Religion

"One of the most engaging, comprehensive, and compelling overviews of anthropology of religion ever published. Eller successfully integrates and interprets a wide array of ethnographic information, giving ample attention to both past contributions and contemporary perspectives. Beginning students and specialists alike will learn much from this volume." Stephen D. Glazier, Graduate Professor of Anthropology, University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
