From the Introduction
These writings aim to direct attention to the distinctly sacred nature of [the entheogens] with the hope that religious minded investigators, policy architects, and the concerned public will take note. It is our hope that this book will contribute to an honest reappraisal of the historic and modern significance of entheogens, so that they may be used accordingly in today’s world by those seeking to cultivate their spiritual awareness.
From the Back Cover
Collectively, these essays constitute the best single inquiry into the religious significance of chemically occasioned mystical experience that has yet appeared.
