"I can attest to the level of serious scholarship offered. This is the first academic treatment of Spiritualism of this magnitude, ever. . . . Christopher Moreman is to be commended on the enormous effort that has gone into completion of this ground-breaking anthology that is sure to raise discussion of Spiritualism within academia and its inclusion within religious studies. . . . For Spiritualist churches, and university and other libraries specializing in religious studies, psychical research, or anomalies, Christopher Moreman's anthology should be a mandatory acquisition." - Psypioneer Journal
"The principal audiences at which this set are aimed are students of theology, comparative religion and the history of religion, although much will also be of interest to general social historians. Psychical researchers and parapsychologists also should find much of Volume Two in particular of interest." - Magonia Review of Books
