"This extraordinary project is the literary equivalent of turning over a flat rock. There is much to be seen and learned here — all of it unsettling, disquieting, occasionally downright scary."
— William Murchison, Radford Distinguished Professor, Baylor University
"When a bishop of a Christian church happily worships alongside a Wiccan invoking other gods, something has gone horribly wrong. In False Dawn, Lee Penn has produced a comprehensive and critical history of the United Religions Initiative. This book sounds a clear warning: Anyone who makes theological truth subservient to utopianism denigrates all religions."
— Douglas LeBlanc, Editor, GetReligion.org
