Item description for Quoting God: How Media Shape Ideas about Religion and Culture by Claire Hoertz Badaracco...

Overview
Quoting God charts the many ways in which media reports religion news, how media uses the quoted word to describe lived faith, and how media itself influences-and is influenced by-religion in the public square. The volume intentionally brings together the work of academics, who study religion as a crucial factor in the construction of identity, and the work of professional journalists, who regularly report on religion in an age of instant and competitive news. This book clearly demonstrates that the relationship between media culture and spiritual culture is foundational and multi-directional; that the relationship between news values and religion in political life is influential; and that the relationship among modernity, belief, and journalism is pivotal.
