This is an extraordinarily wide-ranging and thought-provoking book, dealing engagingly with significant issues such as authenticity, heritage and (literally) the place of religion in the 21st century. It shows that reading about immensely serious and far-reaching religious and cultural issues can also be fun! * Marion Bowman, Senior Lecturer in Religious Studies, The Open University, UK *
Crispin Paine's latest adventure takes us around the globe to a dizzying number of Islamic, Hindu, Christian, Buddhist, Daoist, and even multifaith theme-parks that combine entertainment and religious reflection and practice. Along the way, he delves deeply into the theoretical, cultural, affective, and sociological reasons and ramifications behind these sacred leisure spaces. * Justin McDaniel, Professor of Religious Studies, University of Pennsylvania, USA *
