Kipp Gilmore-Clough, Religion The breadth of the essays on offer in this volume is truly impressive... This book, or selected essays in it, could be put to excellent use in a variety of college courses, whether introductory or higher level, as well as being of use to anyone who wants to learn and think deeply about the historic and ongoing presence and influence of the Bible in daily American life.

Zen Hess, Christian Century In this impressive collection, 30 scholars contribute to an immense sociological review of who reads the Bible, how they read it, and how their reading has shaped American culture.... Goff, Farnsley, and Thuesen have prepared a feast full of fat insights and sweet research. The questions they raise will enable pastors and professors to better prepare sermons and classes with an eye toward ecumenical dialogue.
