Men's Bodies, Men's Gods explores the intersection of body, religion, and culture from the specific perspective of male identities.
How are male bodies constructed in different historical periods and contexts? How do race, ethnicity, and sexual preference impact on the intersection of male bodies and religious identity? Does Christianity provide models to cope with the aging and ailing male body? Does it provide models for intimacy between men and women? Between men and men? And, how do men reflect the carnal dimensions of power, abuse, and justice?

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Explores a neglected area of American Religious study: Religious Science--or New Thought--among African Americans. Illuminating, insightful, well-researched, and clearly written, this indispensable work adds immensely to our understanding of the variety of black religious experience in the U.S."
-Sandy Dwayne Martin, author of "Black Baptists and African Missions"


"This well-written book should help to expand the boundaries of what is called black religions"
-Choice", Highly recommended.,


"An important and intriguing critique of narrow understandings of what it means to be Black and religious. This captivating journey through the religious sensibilities and insights of the East Bay Church of Religious Science will challenge and inspire. I highly recommend it."
-Anthony Pinn, Rice University
