About this title


First published in 1971, provides sociological and psychological perspectives on a broad-based study of various ecstatic traditions. In this second edition, Professor Lewis offers a new introduction in which he answers his critics and defines his current position in the field.


"Linda Walbridge does more than analyze social and religious questions--she brings the reader into the very heart of a community that is struggling for justice and puts a human face on urgent questions of interreligious relations that are dear to Muslims and Christians alike."
-"Bullentin of the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies
