'“Mr. Stark is especially adept at challenging received ideas.” —The Wall Street Journal   “Stark has a vigorous prose style and a gift for clear explanation.” —The New York Times  “Stark writes books that are models of popularly accessible scholarly writing.” —World Magazine   “Rodney Stark is one of America’s preeminent scholars of religion. . . . Often controversial, a slayer of historical myths.” —Patheos   “Bracing, rollicking, startling, belligerent, informative, and guaranteed to provoke second and third thoughts about what readers thought they always knew about religion.” —First Things   “Giants are rare in any day. . . . [But] maybe we do have giants . . . for example, Rodney Stark. . . . He continually throws the discipline of sociology of religion into chaos.” —Andrew M. Greeley, University of Chicago   “An eminent sociologist of religion . . . Stimulating, provocative, even revolutionary.” —Journal of Early Christian Studies   “[Stark] writes with a clarity and concision that make him a pleasure to read. . . . A number of fondly held myths get demolished.” —National Review   “Here is theoretical brashness combined with disarming common sense, a capacious curiosity, and a most uncommon ability to tell a complicated story in simple prose.” —Wayne A.
