Religion: A Humanist Interpretation represents a lifetime's work on the anthropology of religion from a rather distinctive personal viewpoint.

This anthropological approach to the study of religion covers themes ranging from religious belief and personal adjustment; gods and God; offering and sacrifice; religion and politics; Malay magic and spirit mediumship; truth and paradox in religion. The volume is illustrated with examples from Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and other religions from Africa and Oceania
