  • The God Beat: What Journalism Says about Faith and Why It Matters

    The God Beat: What Journalism Says about Faith and Why It Matters

    In the 1960s and '70s a more personal, subjective, voice-driven journalism emerged, known as New Journalism. In the new century, those same tropes are used by religion writers who similarly scrutinize questions of faith and doubt while taking God-talk seriously. The God Beat brings together significant and characteristic samples of this emerging genre, helping us understand how we talk about God in public spaces--and why it matters--in a whole new way.
