Summary

A vital resource for students and professors of mass communication, this book discusses the role of religion in the uses and effects of media. It introduces a wide range of issues rarely discussed in traditional textbooks such as: how the "culture wars" approach is impacting the study of mass communication; what various religious leaders teach their members about media use; how new information technologies are impacting religious worship; and how religious groups differ in the ways they define "media literacy".
