'This carefully crafted book takes on a very complex and multifaceted phenomenon. As a project of genuine interdisciplinary work, it shows how serious intellectual resources can be mobilised to investigate complicated empirical material, often too simplistically marked "spirituality in organisations". Examples familiar to all receive nuanced conceptual treatment so that both cases and analyses become valuable exercises in excellent social science. Looking forward to using it in thinking through contemporary work, management and culture, as well as in teaching.' -- Bogdan Costea, Lancaster University, UK
'This volume provides a sophisticated look at the varieties of spirituality under capitalism, combining sociological perspectives on religion with a critical engagement on the topic. Flanked on its sides by an organizational spirituality literature that too often treats spirituality unquestioningly, and a critical literature that reduces it to ideological and instrumental uses, this volume presents nuanced essays that take seriously the lived experiences of organizational members, while never losing sight of the social and political stakes of spirituality within a capitalist society.' -- Gazi Islam, Grenoble Ecole de Management, France
