What People are Saying About This

Clifford G. Christians

This splendid book opens up a fascinating world where media culture and religious practice converge. Bourdieu's habitus becomes an exciting venue for the interactions of media and religion in everyday life. What a well-crafted volume this is, staking out as it does a new territory, with sophisticated thinking and eye-opening critique.

Clifford G. Christians, Director, Institute of Communications Research, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
