"This is the mature work of an anthropologist of mysticism who knows mysticism from the inside as well. He courageously carves out of reductionist Freudianism a non-reductionistic understanding of mystical experiences. At the same time he deepens our understanding of the variety of religious experiences, refusing to blend them all into a single 'oceanic experience.' His grasp of a wide variety of different traditions and practices is breathtaking. There are many books on mysticism, but none that does what this book does." -- Walter Wink, Auburn Theological Seminary
