“The holy man of our time, it seems, is not a figure like Gotama or Jesus or Mohammed, a man who could found a world religion, but a figure like Gandhi, a man who passes over by sympathetic understanding from his own religion to other religions and comes back again with new insight to his own. Passing over and coming back, it seems, is the spiritual adventure of our time. It is the adventure I want to undertake and describe in this book.” —from the Preface
“. . . a theological achievement of the first order.” —Library Journal
“[This book is] Dunne’s sensitive exploration of ‘passing over,’ the process whereby an individual crosses sympathetically from his own religion to another and returns with increased understanding of his personal faith. Dunne’s own literary odyssey leads him to conclude that all religions are based on common experiences. The need for ‘passing over’ is even more vital now than when Dunne wrote the book in 1972.” —The Christian Century
