MEDIA REVIEWS
[A] splendid and highly literate book that ranges from theory to ethnographya book that is fun to read and very informative. Mountford offers some fine insights about embodied aspects of performance (e.g., delivery and voice) that are usually neglected in the rhetorical study of religion. Choice"
Drawing on personal experience, intensive study of the artes praedicandi in the history of rhetoric, and case studies of three remarkable contemporary women preachers, Roxanne Mountford s The Gendered Pulpit explores the deeply gendered nature of traditional preaching spaces and performances and leads the way in articulating alternative understandings of theological purpose, religious performance, and preaching space.
