"In Black Religion and the Imagination of Matter in the Atlantic World, Noel engages wide-ranging theoretical and disciplinary frameworks (comparative religions, historical, phenomenological, philosophical, theological, sociological, textual/hermeneutical) to distill from diverse thoughts and analytical lenses a new interdisciplinary approach to the study of Black Atlantic religious experience . . .I suspect that Noel s volume will have a definitive impact upon the field of Black religious studies for many years to come. It will be the one text that scholars of religion might use to cover Black religious experience while simultaneously teaching religious studies theory and methodology." - Dianne M. Stewart, Associate Professor of Religion, Emory University
