'Starred review. In this wide-ranging investigation, Stark detects sacred reality---not pious deception---at the heart of transcendent beliefs shared by Aborigines and Anglicans. However, it is in the revelatory faiths---and not the meditative religions of Eastern Asia---that Stark discerns the fullest manifestation of God. An essential sourcebook'---Booklist. 496 pages, softcover. HarperOne.
