Read in January, 2011

A book about the 'experience' of religion and the difficulties and conflicts in narrating that experience from religious and secular standpoints. Looks at the take on "fits, trances, and visions" from the point of view of pentecostals, spiritualists, mesmerists, etc. etc. during the period of time when these groups were forming their identities and ideologies.
