I am not really a mystic -- so Weiner's choice of which religions to study is a bit odd to me. (and I would say his list includes at least one cult, even if he doesn't define it that way.)

I think to understand someone's god -- and how humans live and die with that god, you have to understand their weddings, coming of age ceremonies, and their funerals. Yet Weiner attends none of these.

People familiar with Buehrens, Church and Guengerich will recognize the theologians Weiner quotes throughout the book. If you are truly interested in seeking god, I might recommend you follow the quotes you like back to the authors he quotes.
