“Here, informed by the work of a wide range of social theorists, anthropologists, and others, Schilbrack seeks to draw philosophers of religion out of their cultural insularity, through a consideration of concepts such as ‘embodied knowledge,’ to contemplate what ‘religion’ might be, feel like, and mean in ‘the rest’ of the world.” (Church Times, 4 September 2015)
“The book adds considerable momentum to the most innovative developments in philosophy of religion today.” (Int J Philos Religion, 1 March 2015)
“Schilbrack concludes with strong arguments on the cross-cultural study of religion and suggests a combination of functional (the work religion does in human lives) and substantive (what religion enables people to know). Each chapter includes a bibliographic essay that will make this book a delight for classroom use. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above.” (Choice, 1 January 2015)
“This book is a valuable resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate students in either field. Similarly, scholars will find important issues raised in this volume that they often ignore given, as Schilbrack argues, the insularity that characterizes the philosophy of religion.” (Religious Studies Review, 1 September 2014)
“Schilbrack’s important book proposes a transformation of the philosophy of religion which would, if taken seriously, remove its vices while preserving its virtues. He shows, with panache, that the insularity and intellectualism of the field can be overcome by extending its range to include nonwestern and nontheistic forms of religion, and by attending as much to practice as to belief. And he does this without compromising the seriousness of religious claims to truth. It’s a considerable achievement.”
—Paul J. Griffiths, Warren Chair Catholic Theology, Duke University
“This book is much-needed and long overdue. Kevin Schilbrack is concerned with a set of controversies that have agitated the field of religious studies for the past generation and more – controversies in which both the proper shape and very legitimacy of the field have seemed to be at stake. Patiently and thoroughly, Schilbrack works through these and sets out a series of robust and well-argued answers. The book not only articulates a program for philosophy of religion, but also displays that program in operation.”
—Andrew Dole, Amherst College

I did not read all of the final chapter ("The Academic Study of Religions: a Map with Bridges") as I am not of academia and it felt voyeuristic.
