Out of the wide variety of themes covered by Husserl's phenomenology and later developed by Heidegger, Merleau Ponty, and others in different possible directions, the present work attempts to indicate the few features of the method that derives from Edmund Husserl's basic themes of the phenomenological movement and its methodology. Barua explores the manner in which this method has been applied to the study of art and religion by other phenomenologists and accordingly introduces the problem of this profound bulk, namely, the phenomenological approach to religion, mostly in their terms.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Phenomenology of Religion presents the ordinarily complex integrated field of religious studies and beliefs on the one hand and the philosophy of phenomenology on the other, in an elegant and highly readable fashion without detracting from the essence of the field-that is, what it means to experience spirituality and the important influence that such an experience plays in the lives of ordinary everyday folk. Thoroughly recommended for the serious scholar as well as for anyone who is curious about what it means to have a religious experience or who wishes to better understand this fundamental human experience. -- Christopher R. Stones, Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology
It is Barua's insight into the width and the comprehensiveness of the concept of 'Noema' that helps her encompass, within the phenomenology of religion, the meaning structures in their existential variety and plot those structures on to some commonalities. It is in this important respect that I consider Barua's sensitive research to be not only a genuine contribution to the phenomenology of religion but also a pointer to the understanding of faiths in their variety. Barua's work is indeed topical. I am sure Barua's work will find its deserved place in the literature on phenomenology. -- Kalyan Kumar Bagchi, former professor, Visva-Bharati University
