Publisher's Description

Whether the issue is the rise of religiously inspired terrorism, the importance of faith based NGOs in global relief and development, or campaigning for evangelical voters in the U.S., religion proliferates in our newspapers and magazines, on our radios and televisions, on our computer screens and, increasingly, our mobile devices. Americans who assumed society was becoming more and more secular have been surprised by religions' rising visibility and central role in current events. Yet this is hardly new: the history of American journalism has deep religious roots, and religion has long been part of the news mix.

Providing a wide-ranging examination of how religion interacts with the news by applying the insights of history, sociology, and cultural studies to an analysis of media, faith, and the points at which they meet, The Oxford Handbook of Religion and the American News Media is the go-to volume for both secular and religious journalists and journalism educators, scholars in media studies, journalism studies, religious studies, and American studies. Divided into five sections, this handbook explores the historical relationship between religion and journalism in the USA, how religion is covered in different media, how different religions are reported on, the main narratives of religion coverage, and the religious press.

Editorial Reviews


A great resource...Winston and her contributors are utterly persuasive in their contention that the currents of the media water are so strong that religion scholars need to be aware of them. --Religion in American History


"This excellent collection fills a large gap in reference works on the interdisciplinary subject matter of religion and the news media in the US. Editor Winston (Annenberg School, USC) is one of the leading figures at the intersection of religion and news media, and the range and depth of coverage she has assembled here is provocative and useful." --CHOICE


"The Oxford Handbook of Religion and the American News Media should be an essential reference work in journalism, American studies, media studies, and religious studies- suitable for undergraduates, scholars, and professionals. The volume offers a compendium of analyses, reflective metahistory, and inventive methodological approaches that will be helpful to a broad range of scholars." --The Journal of American History
