"Gone are the piles of articles and book chapters we used to rely on for a survey course in religion and media. Students and faculty will both delight in this succinct overview of theory and research in religion and media, making it the perfect go-to text we've been looking for." --Debra L. Mason, Professor, School of Journalism, University of Missouri.
"In addition to offering a sorely needed, up-to-date foundational text, Media and Religion offers creative ideas for teaching and understanding the central concepts and methods of the field." --Amanda Sturgill, Associate Professor of Communications, School of Communication, Elon University
"A much-needed roadmap for exploring an important yet under-researched area at a time when religion is appearing on radar screens all over the world. Best of all, Media and Religion takes us beyond frameworks and theories into a realm of interdisciplinary connections and real-world applications." --Donn James Tilson, Associate Professor of Public Relations, School of Communication, University of Miami
"Media and Religion provides a helpful synthesis of the many different subfields of media and religion. It encompasses many facets of media (entertainment, strategic communication, the Internet, news) and challenges our conceptions of religion by introducing the numinous. It provides an introduction into the emerging field of media and religion, and as such is suitable for the undergraduate classroom, the newly oriented, and as a conceptual reference for seasoned researcher." --Kyong James Cho, Texas A&M University
