Review:

"Classicists will particularly enjoy this book, not only because half of the volume (19 studies) is dedicated to specific Greek and Roman topics, but also because most of the studies of the two other sections (12 on Judaism and Christianity, and 9 on religion in modernity) touch on general subjects and present a panorama of their topic intended to inform the non-expert reader." - Miguel Herrero de Jauregui, Universidad Complutense de Madrid in: "Bryn Mawr Classical Review," 2011.02.30"
