From the Publisher
"The eight chapters move along at a nice clip...nobody in the academy is paying enough attention [to the cost of televangelism]. Jonathan Walton is." -Katherine Sonderegger,Modern Theology
"This book is the best work we have on the complex dynamics of the Black megachurch phenomenon. Walton is a brilliant cultural critic and courageous prophetic voice!"
-Cornel West,Princeton University
“Walton presents a spectacular piece of contemporary scholarship on the Black Church and media. He asserts that his work is foremost a scholarly work in Christian social ethics but the reader will find that it is more than that. It is an attempt to bridge the person in the pulpit, pew, and classroom in such a way that the only song that can be sung is, ‘blest be the ties that bind.’”-Homiletic.net,
"An important examination of the Black Electronic Church. Jonathan Walton brings new insights into the major TV evangelists in the African American community."
-James H. Cone,Union Theological Seminary
"One of the first books to thoughtfully analyze how African American television ministries are re-shaping the contours of black religious experiences. With critical insight into the theological, social, and political logics of three mega-ministries, Walton’s book provides just the stimulus we need for a long overdue conversation!"
-Marla Frederick,Harvard University
