Reviews

". . . well researched and challenging book combining historical scholarship and sociological analysis. It is therefore recommended for sociologists and psychologists as well as historians of religion. . . . a welcome addition to the study of contemporary religious movements and contributes much to our understanding of the nature of charismatic leadership." - Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion
