  • "A magnificent resource. The book should be available in public and academic libraries that subscribe to the Yearbook of American and Canadian Churches."-William R. Hutchison, Warren Professor of the History of Religion in America, Harvard University
  • "General readers, students, educators, and researchers from various fields will find much in this volume to their liking. Quality compilations such as this one are woefully scarce and are a needed complement to the burgeoning secondary and interpretive literature in the field of North American religion."--Journal of Church and State
  • "The publication of [Religious Documents North American Annual Volume 1] Spiritual Crosscurrents by Academic International Press marks the beginning of a significant publishing project. Well indexed and clearly organized for ready referencing"-Publishers Weekly
  • "[RelDoc's] wide range will mean that professionals and students will now have much easier access to documents from the more obscure but still important smaller denominations and from religious movements which are otherwise not readily available. A very valuable resource for all libraries."-Camillus von Wahlde, Chairman, Department of Theology, Loyola University Chicago.
