Still worth reading 12 Dec 2012
By TomE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is over 100 years old, yet is still the single most important book about the psychology of religious belief. The author takes a dispassionate look at the varieties of religious belief as an expression of human nature. It is basic to anyone who a non-sectarian understanding of faith.

Surprising on the upside! 11 Jun 2012
By AdviceGiver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A now historical insight into a seminal thinker in the crossover areas of psychology and religion. His insight was fresh for the times and I was very influenced by his insight which created a modern understanding of the place of polytheism in the human psyche.

Always moderate and balanced, he nevertheless asks the hard questions and doesn't shy away from critical difficulties.

Varieties of REligious Experience 17 Nov 2012
By Bill Shea - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This classic from over 100 years ago still is a base line for studying religion(s). It is more descriptive than judgemental. James spends more time on the experience of religion than on its institutions. It is of course heavily weighted toward Western religions, but that does not take away from the calm and cool descriptive method. The language does allow you to realize that he is the brother of a famous novelist. James accomplishes what he set out to do and we are the better for it.

great book 4 May 2013
By Fredric Schiffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's about religious experience, not religion, and this is an overlooked aspect of psychology and philosophy. James writes clearly on complex issues.

Heard people talk about it for years in the rooms and found it difficult to find. I haven't finished reading it yet and plan to take my time reading it.
