      There is a book with the same title, albeit with a strong subtitle: Consuming Religion: Christian Faith and Practice in a Consumer Culture by Vincent J. Miller. I think Miller would agree that his book is a primary source for me as mine would be for him: what I describe as socially inevitable he dissects as theologically : Kathryn Lofton. Publisher Synopsis "Consuming Religion offers a serious look at our culture and provides conceptual resources for evaluating what adds to and what weakens the practice of religion." Rich Landers, Anglican Theological Review--Sanford Lakoff Even though I am not a person of faith, I read Miller s book with a sense of relief.

    Kathryn Lofton is a professor of religious studies and history at Yale University. Her book Consuming Religion (University of Chicago Press, ) offers a collection of eleven essays of cultural critique that reflect on the connections between religion, consumer culture, celebrity and the definition of religion is capacious and founded on Durkheim’s .   It is, ultimately, not a book about consumer culture’s effects on traditional religions, but about how corporate discourse, consumer marketing, and media celebrity themselves constitute forms of sociality that demand analysis by scholars of religion. Durkheim provides the theoretical orientation for these : Vincent J Miller.
