I am very grateful to the commentators for the time and effort that they expended on my book. I do not imagine that it was easy to read. For over and beyond any unclarities generated by my prose, the perspective on categories celebrated in Conceptualizing Religion constitutes a departure from what most of us, from childhood on, have learned to accept as workable and conventional (if not actually mandated by a rational accommodation to the order of the world). To the extent that a certain disparity in viewpoints distances me from some of my readers, it imposes difficulties in following my argument. I appreciate the fact that the commentators have taken the book seriously enough to engage it. I respond to each of the commentators below, in alphabetical order.
