Product Details


Engrossing . . . Skillfully reported by journalist Kathryn Joyce, Quiverfull has echoes of The Handmaid’s Tale. Unfortunately, it’s not fiction.—Rebecca Braverman, Bust

“An invaluable contribution to understanding how religious fundamentalism still stands in the way of sexual justice . . . An urgent call to dismantle fundamentalism’s hold on our politics, and our policy-making.”—Sarah Posner, American Prospect online

“Insightful . . . A call to reexamine our own beliefs . . . The issues Joyce’s book raises are fundamental to our identity as human beings, and as Christians. Perhaps they could stand some reexamination.”—Elrena Evans, Christianity Today

“[An] excellent, frightening new book . . . Quiverfull merits wide readership.”—Edd Doerr, The Voice of Reason: Journal of Americans for Religious Liberty

“Riveting and deeply disturbing. This important book shines a light on a corner of the Christian right that has taken misogyny to sadomasochistic extremes, and reveals the sexual anxieties so often underlying modern fundamentalism.”—Michelle Goldberg, author of Kingdom Coming

“Joyce gives us a first-ever glimpse into the Christian patriarchy movement, and her riveting reporting makes it all the scarier. If you’ve been feeling complacent about women’s status, read this book!—Barbara Ehrenreich

“A groundbreaking investigation . . . Future historians and journalists will owe Joyce a debt of gratitude for her foray into this still nascent religious group.”—Publishers Weekly
