7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By W. Gafkjen on July 18, 2001
Format: Paperback
In this little book Dan Andriacco brings into concise, accessible form a wide range of research and reflection on electronic media, the culture created by those media, and Christian approaches to living in an electronically mediated culture. Without slipping off the slope on either the side of outright rejection of such media or the side of rampant accomodation to them, Andriacco provides clear guidance for living with electronic media in a thoughtful, faithful, Christian manner. This guidance is rooted in a commitment to "reading" and relating to electronic media through two lenses: the lens of "media literacy" (understanding how and why electronic media work) and the lens of the Christian gospel. When I led a small group in reading and discussing this book we discovered very quickly that theory, theology, and practical suggestions work together in its pages to encourage transformation in the lives of those who read and discuss it. Thoughful reading is helped by questions for reflection at the end of most chapters. Though written primarily for church professionals this book is very accessible to anyone looking for help in living in our electronically mediated world.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the best practical book I've come across on technology in ministry. It was written in 2001, so it doesn't really deal with social media, but it does deal with the Internet and its effects on church life. How do we train people in the skills of media literacy? What type of technology is appropriate for the liturgy? How is Internet affecting the mission of the Church? Part theological, part theoretical, and two parts practical, this book answers these questions from many angles.

The author, Dan Andriacco, is the Communications Director for the Archdiocese of Cincinatti making this one of the few books covering technology and religion written from a Catholic perspective.

It was easy enough to read, but not something I'd pick. I had to have it for a web class.

More About the Author

A former journalist and reviewer of mystery books, Dr. Dan Andriacco has been a member of The Tankerville Club, a scion society of the Baker Street Irregulars, since 1980. His goal in writing mysteries and critical works about the field (including Sherlock Holmes) is to entertain; he strives to be fun and funny, and reviews indicate that he has accomplished this.

Dan's doctorate degree is in ministry, which is reflected in the subject matter of his first two books. In his day job, Dan has been communications director of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati since 1997. Dan and his wife, Ann Brauer Andriacco, have three grown children and five grandchildren. They enjoy traveling, an endless source of experiences that are reflected in Dan's writing.
