This co-publication with Praeger/ABC-CLIO distills key essays from a larger three-volume work to provide multiple entries into the study of religion and culture. The anthology pays special attention to the anthropological and sociological dimensions of religious experience. The introduction contextualizes the methodologies employed in the essays, and individual essays combine historical background with academic critique to show how religious practice is carried out and what meanings should be derived
