Not Lost for A Response
In 2008, colleagues Joel Thiessenof Ambrose University College and Lorne Dawson of the University of Waterloo paid me the compliment of assessing my work in a lead article published in Studies of Religion (volume 37, pp. 389-415). Their article was recently reprinted by Lori Beaman in her reader, Religion & Canadian Society.
The editor, Francis Landry, invited me to offer a response which was published in the same issue of SIR (pp. 417-425). Readers may find both the Thiessen-Dawson critique and my response helpful. What I had to sayis availableherein pre-publication but virtually unaltered form.
