"Readers gain a great deal of insight into religious developments in South Africa and the connection to continuing political realities." -- Journal of the American Academy of Religion

"Under the Canopy is the next major detailed publication to enrich the understanding (and the bibliography) of South African indigenous churches, one that will become a standard work." -- Missionalia
