Its Spring 2012 issue has been described as "a fine volume of interfaith reflection that covers fifteen years of Vaishnava/Christian dialogue, most of which has taken place at an annual conference at Rockwood Manor in Potomac, Maryland".[2]

Francis Xavier Clooney has commented positively on the contribution the journal has made to Hindu scholarly publishing.[3]

Edwin Bryant and Maria Ekstrand describe the journal as a "truly nonpartisan enterprise that highlights contemporary research by major scholars not only of the Chaitanya tradition but also of Vaishnavism in general".[4]
