Overall, the ten chapters have shown very successfully with the ethnographic and historic details that “religion is sensual because it is corporeal and earthy” (p. vii) as outlined in the series foreword. Religion is what people do, what can be touched, tasted, smelled, seen and listened to. The chapters also demonstrated that senses do not work in separation but intertwined with each other. We can expect much from this series and its coming volumes.
