"The study of apocryphal texts is probably the single most important task facing Chinese Buddhist studies today. This volume has done much to get it off on the right foot." --Journal of Asian Studies 50 (1991) "Few books of scholarly essays are this ambitious. The editor ... intends to introduce not just new studies, but a new field of study.... However, rather than marking the birth of Buddhist apocrypha studies, the book ... successfully demonstrates its early maturity." --Monumenta Serica 40 (1992) "The essays are without exception meticulous in scholarship and path-finding in significance." --Journal of Chinese Religions 20 (1992)
