    As the editor of this volume I am biased, but as a fair minded reader can see by the anonymous reviews below with 1 star, the reviews aren't serious attempts to engage with the volume. This book is the first attempt in print to bring together a Christian and Pagan for respectful dialogue over real differences. It has been well received by members of both religious communities and it represents a way forward beyond ignoring each other, or worse, demonizing and misrepresenting each other.
