Faith as Articulated Through The Marketplace & Celebrity

Consuming Religion, by Kathryn Lofton: "A wide-ranging and thought-provoking account of religion and spirituality in America explores how faith is articulated through the marketplace and celebrity, says Torkel Brekke."
 
"Consuming Religion seems like a natural next step for her as a scholar and critical observer of American religion and celebrity culture, but this time around the net is cast wider and the catch includes names such as Britney Spears, the Kardashians, Mel Gibson and Madonna. Sometimes Lofton becomes a little hectic – as when presenting a brief history of religion and celebrity over a mere eight pages, but in sum Consuming Religion is an elegant, critical, wide-ranging and thought-provoking account of religion and spirituality in America today."
