A few years ago I used this book to teach myself A Level religious studies and without it I would have been somewhat in trouble! Not only is it in an excellent overview of religious experience as a concept but it was very readable and useful as a primer on the topic (as studied at A level). It was in fact so concise that I barely needed to move outside of this book for the required information. I almost feel a debt of gratitude to the authors of this book such was its utility! Highly recommended. Besides its academic usefulness it is also an intriguing and accessible read in itself!
