Editorial Reviews


Readings on Religion as News examines the relationship between religious news coverage and the decline of newspaper competition with a somewhat arbitrary selection of articles categorized into four general time periods from early colonial era down to the present time when religious "diversity takes hold." With that diversity of faith, the authors contend, has come "a collision of values." The authors, both former religion reporters, include unusual and little known stories in this collection, placing those articles within their historical contexts in brief introductory sections to each chapter. This compilation stands alone as an anthology of religious news coverage and fills a void for scholars of American religion and journalism history. It would be all the more valuable, however, if it included a cross-referencing system to enable searches by publication, text, or date.....Media coverage of religion demonstrates that while over time the issues themselves appear to be far flung and wide ranging, the fact of religiously motivated debate on matters of public concern has been a constant in the history of this country. That continuity only reinforces the truth that when it comes to religion and the news, there is indeed nothing new under the sun. -- From Beliefnet

From the Back Cover

Discussions and examples of writing news about religion – a type of journalism rarely taught in the classroom but frequently assigned on the job – are found in this anthology, suitable for teaching alone or as a companion to Reporting News about Religion: An Introduction for Journalists. Containing over 70 examples published in American newspapers and magazines, this book discusses trends in American newspaper ownership and American society that have affected coverage of religious news, evolution of substance and style, and the influence of religion on American culture.
