In an age of accelerating information and increasing technology, media matters more now than ever.
In this book, Read Mercer Schuchardt helps us navigate the digital age from a distinctly Christian perspective, offering guidance for becoming wise users of media rather than simply being used by media. Highlighting the importance of studying and understanding communication arts and how they are changing, this book will help you think creatively about using media effectively for the sake of the gospel, the church, and the world.
Part of the Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition series.
