From an anthropological perspective I think this is a fine addition to the religious literature. From a generic readers perspective this is a difficult and confusing read that leaves you with more questions than answers(which may be the point). I throughly enjoyed the older pieces that show the origins of modern thoughts and prejudices that still persist. Overall if your a student of religion and want to take a non-philosophical look, than this is a great piece to gain a broad perspective of many religious traditions and they ways in which anthropologists study it.
