Pressestimmen"Kintz's research is revealing, even shocking. Between Jesus and the Market is of paramount importance if we are ever to understand, and not merely revile or embrace, the movements she studies." - Juliet Flower MacCannell, University of California, Irvine "Kintz is one of the few scholars on the left who takes the notion of religious faith seriously: while she is not a theologian, she understands the deeply affective longing for spiritual knowledge that motivates the political awakening of men and women of the right. Avoiding the tendency to see the right as a ragtag bag of 'fanatics,' Kintz articulates the philosophic, psychic, and political consequences of 'naming' oneself as part of an activist spiritual community." - Peggy Phelan, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University "Linda Kintz's clear and profound understanding of the crucial symbolic and political positions occupied by born-again women in contemporary America will enlighten public dialogue in ways that might actually, finally, move it forward." - Alice Jardine, Harvard University
