Robert Sokolowski
"A brilliant philosophical reflection on the human experience of the divine."
New Theology Review
"A thoughtful and systematic consideration of the question of the phenomenon of symbolic expression within the realm of religion. . . The book offers valuable insights and provocative questions concerning the role of symbol, language, and myth in our understanding of the sacred."
Richard John Neuhaus in First Things
"Philosopher Louis Dupré has for decades been providing us with some of the more convincing analyses of why modernity is at war with the spiritual life. Symbols of the Sacred is a kind of summing up of what he has learned. . . This book is rich fare, as is all his writing."
Spirit & Life
"In five dense chapters including Signs, Words, Art and Myths, we are treated to an in-depth explanation of symbolism and its role in the Church and in personal prayer. The author deals with each aspect with great philosophical expertise yet at the same time he convinces us of the vital part that it plays in the area of spirituality. . . Symbols of the Sacred is a strong affirmation for all those who believe that religion is more than the visible and the literal."
