From Library Journal:

The insider/outsider problem in religious discourse has its impact at the academic level, rarely venturing into lay realms of belief and faith. The notion that someone can get inside another's belief system and speak with integrity about it exists in tension alongside the notion that only those within a tradition can speak for it. The debate rages on between etic and emic, reductionism and belief, anthropology and theology. These controversies continue, remarks editor McCutcheon (religion, SouthWest Missouri State Univ.), but re-creating the claims and counter-claims provides invaluable insight. Reprinting stellar essays from the likes of Kant, Geertz, Otto, and current scholars like Wendy O'Flaherty and Rosalind Shaw, this work covers religious experience, religious anthropology, reductionism, neutrality, and the scholarly voice. As McCutcheon notes, this text has no one use. Indeed, its application to religious studies seems nearly universal. Highly recommended.?Sandra Collins, Univ. of Pittsburgh

Review:

"Undergraduates will find this collection very valuable.[...]McCutcheon explains, in comprehensible language, theoretical terms and concepts which are significant and indeed critical for the understanding and method of the study of religions. For graduates and post-graduates, as well as for anyone teaching in the subject, the usefulness of the anthology lies in the convenience of having several classic and contemporary readings assembled in one volume".
- Journal of Contemporary Religion, 2001

"Presents an outstanding overview of the insider/outsider problem in the study of religion."
- Teaching Theology and Religion
