Mediating Faith: Faith Formation in a Trans-Media Era by Clint Schnekloth

The church struggles with media. Whether it is a denomination negotiating the 24-hour news cycle or a church evaluating how online games influence the youth group, the role of media in the church, and the importance of understanding media for the church, has never been greater.

In Mediating Faith, Clint Schnekloth offers an insightful tour, evaluation, and theological response to the trans-media era. Far from frightening, Schnekloth highlights the opportunities and the riches of this fascinating time.

I read through the book and all the content was about the 90s.  It is a history book, not something that is very useful.
