"[Deloria's] insider-outsider position, and his forceful and knowledgeable advocacy of tribal religion, create a prophetic voice in the current analysis of religion in the public square."
-William A. Durbin, "New Theology Review
""For This Land, a compilation of 28 essays written during the thirty years from the 1960s to the 1990s, further displays the depth and breadth of Deloria's command of eppistemological issues. In this volume, he again brings an insightful perspective, sharp criticism, and wit to the study of the role that Christian churches... have played in oppressing Native religious beliefs... This volume is well worth careful study. It should not only spark useful discussion and debate among researchers, teachers, and students, but also rpovide guidelines for the work of activists and policymakers. Simply put, anyone concerned with the connections between religion (or spirituality) and politics at the dawn of the twenty-first century will want to read "For This Land."
-Stephen Greymorning, "Transforming Anthropology
"Deloria, because of the depth of his passion, remains one of the most stirring and articulate voices in America today."
-"Salt Lake City Tribune, 5/99
"Though controversial, Deloria's writings have challenged continually the ways that religious thinkers understand the relationship between the practices of American religion native and imported...Deloria's forceful and important essays deserve wide reading."
-"Publishers Weekly
"Thirty years' worth of Deloria's essays on religion and Native American life, thoughtfully edited and presented.. ..A forceful and clear-sighted anthology."
-"Kirkus Reviews, Jan 1, 1999
