- "A magnificent resource. The book should be available in public
and academic libraries that subscribe to the Yearbook of American and Canadian
Churches."-William R. Hutchison, Warren Professor of the History of
Religion in America, Harvard University
- "General readers, students, educators, and researchers from various
fields will find much in this volume to their liking. Quality compilations
such as this one are woefully scarce and are a needed complement to the
burgeoning secondary and interpretive literature in the field of North
American religion."--Journal of Church and State
- "The publication of [Religious Documents North American Annual
Volume 1] Spiritual Crosscurrents by Academic International Press marks
the beginning of a significant publishing project. Well indexed and clearly
organized for ready referencing"-Publishers Weekly
- "[RelDoc's] wide range will mean that professionals and students
will now have much easier access to documents from the more obscure but
still important smaller denominations and from religious movements which
are otherwise not readily available. A very valuable resource for all libraries."-Camillus
von Wahlde, Chairman, Department of Theology, Loyola University Chicago.
