"Yelle's scholarship is impeccable and nearly exhaustive-patently first-rate. The writing is precise, clear, and rich. Most importantly, the historical thesis about the theological roots of disenchantment and the Christian origins of modernity is, in my opinion, unanswerable. The book is profound and makes a very real and very important contribution to the fields of intellectual history, history of religions, Indian history, the history of Christianity, the history of the study of religion, and, perhaps most interesting of all, the philosophy of language."--Jeffrey J. Kripal, J. Newton Rayzor Professor of Religious Studies, Rice University

"Highly creative... Yelle directly challenges modern secularists who claim that modernity represents the triumph of rationality over religious superstition and of supposedly neutral, value-free judgment over prejudice... Yelle has written a fascinating, if also controversial, book, one that has important things to say to a wide number of disciplines." --The Marginalia Review of Books
