Synopsis: What Would Buffy Do? explores the fascinating spiritual, religious, and mythological ideas of television's hit series Buffy the Vampire Slayer--from apocalypse and sacrifice to self-reliance, redemption, and the need for humor when fighting our spiritual battles.

From the Inside Flap: "A major contribution to our understanding of Buffy and twenty-first century spirituality. What Would Buffy Do? may be the best brief introduction to all aspects of this amazing television series."
--David Lavery, coeditor, Slayage: The Online International Journal of Buffy Studies

"Jana Riess brilliantly articulates how the Slayer's battle against evil celebrates the core spiritual values held dear by people of faith. Rock it, Sister Riess!"
--Nancy Holder, author; BTVS: The Watcher's Guide, Volume 1; The Evil That Men Do; and Immortal

"Jana Riess makes an eloquent case for Buffy as a hip heroine for our times, vulnerable but empowering and, in the end, deeply spiritual."
--Mark I. Pinksy, author, The Gospel According to The Simpsons

"Jana Riess's rich knowledge of religious tradition illuminates the spirituality of this culturally significant series. Everyone who loves Buffy should read this lively, lucid book."
--Rhonda Wilcox, coeditor, Fighting the Forces: What's at Stake in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

"Perceptive much! What Would Buffy Do? will confirm every fan's sense that if something's ultimately important, you'll find it in the Buffyverse."
--Michael Adams, author, Slayer Slang: A Buffy The Vampire Slayer Lexicon

"At last, a Buffy book as smart as Buffy, the show. What Would Buffy Do? is an erudite and extremely entertaining meditation on ethics, morality, and how to save the world. A lot."
--Jeff Sharlet, coauthor, Killing the Buddha

"Who knew? Buffy may have said that religion is freaky, but she never had a guide to the spiritual life as illuminating and clear as Jana Riess."
--James B. South, Marquette University and editor, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Philosophy: Fear and Trembling in Sunnydale
