Daniel L. Overmyer is Professor of Chinese Studies at the University of British Columbia and Professor of Religion at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Overmyer is one of the leading scholars who have revolutionized the study of Chinese religions... Although we are introduced to many precious volumes in this book, because he provides generous translations of key passages from the ones he discusses, we come away with clear ideas about their structures and contents. His translation is flawless and elegant... One cannot have a full understanding of Chinese religions without a knowledge of this tradition. Thanks to his dedicated research resulting in this important work, future students interested in this subject now have an indispensable guide. -- Chun-Fang Yu * Journal of Asian Studies *
