"That such a wealth of material could be so deftly organized is no small achievement. . . . Especially useful is the occasional annotation identifying the content of a work or establishing its context. Moyles's bibliography is a valuable contribution to the scholarly study of religion and social history, but will appeal as well to a more general audience." - American Reference Books Annual
