"The most comprehensive anthology on its subject, this is a splendid tool for teaching and a matchless scholarly resource." (International Review of Biblical Studies, 2008)
Praise for the first edition:
"[A] reader that ambitiously attempts to represent the full breadth, depth, and complexity of anthropology's investigations into religion. ... The masterly general introduction situates this anthology within the long and often difficult anthropological engagement with this most mystified and powerful realm of social action. ... [A]n excellent text." (International Social Science Review)
"A major guide to both the history of the anthropology of religion and new trends in research. ... Lambek has compiled an excellent anthology." (Journal of Empirical Theology)"A delicious smorgasbord of writings on a variety of religious traditions by scholars both well-known and emergent. This book belongs in the collection of every serious student of religion."
Mari Womack, University of California, Los Angeles
"A rich selection of both core texts and supplemental exemplars. I recommend it."
William H. Swatos, Jr., Baylor University
"A Reader in the Anthropology of Religion is an excellent resource for students in anthropology and religious studies, demonstrating a range of classical as well as more recent approaches and debates. It would work equally well as a course reader and as a reference work to extend a particular aspect or topic in the anthropology of religion."
Fiona Bowie, University of Bristol
