Reviews

"Kelsy Burke's new study of evangelical sexuality websites tells a new, finely nuanced and wholly convincing story... fascinating and suggestive."-- (11/30/2016)
"Burke has constructed an artfully crafted and instructive text that extends sexual work in the sociology of religion, documents the complexity of contemporary religious-sexual relations, and provides a useful example of integrating sexual, gender, and religious sociologies in practice."--American Journal of Sociology
"Burke's writing is accessible, clear, and concise, often elegant."--Contemporary Sociology
"Excellent... Christians under Covers highlights the key role of religion in the historical and social construction of heterosexuality, a crucial intervention in the critical study of heterosexuality and a path-breaking contribution to scholarship on American Evangelicalism. It is also a remarkably well-written book." --Sociology of Religion
"A modern flagship of the academic study of religion and sexual culture. ... A 'win-win' in both content and methodology."--Sage's Sexualities
"Kelsy Burke tells us something about how the Internet works as a social space and about how self-identified Christians police their own sexuality."--Theology and Sexuality
