Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement by Kathryn Joyce
Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement

dawn betts-green, May 18, 2011

I used this for an honors thesis on this very subject, and Joyce became the patron saint of my project. Her writing is incredibly approachable, and even for those not in the academic research of religion, this is an excellent book.

Rapture Ready!: Adventures in the Parallel Universe of Christian Pop Culture by Daniel Radosh
Rapture Ready!: Adventures in the Parallel Universe of Christian Pop Culture

dawn betts-green, May 18, 2011

I originally picked up this book because I was writing an honors thesis on 20th century Evangelicalism, and I just fell in love with Radosh's voice! The book, while covering a broad and useful swath of Evangelical pop culture suitable for academic research, is written in an easily accessible manner, so that those with no background in Religious Studies can absorb it just as well.

Mean Little Deaf Queer: A Memoir by Terry Galloway
Mean Little Deaf Queer: A Memoir

dawn betts-green, January 1, 2011

This is an absolutely brilliant account of a deaf woman in the queer community. I was fortunate enough to hear her speak to a class here, and I could not wait to pick this book up. Take my advice and order it NOW.

I am fortunate enough to live in the same city the author calls her sometime home and heard her speak to a class here at FSU. Both in person and on paper, Galloway is brutally honest and brilliant. You can't help but get caught up in her life.

Monster by A Lee Martinez
Monster

dawn betts-green, December 28, 2009

It isn't hard to get drawn into a world with yetis appearing in grocery store freezers and where angels all have stripper names! This is the best and most entertaining novel I've read in quite a long time, and I can't wait to read the rest of his books.
