Review

Meredith Gould's splendid book combines spiritual wisdom with practical experience to help professional and lay communicators represent the church in society. If congregations and denominations heeded her advice there would be less conflict and more understanding among religions and between faith communities and the media. I thank God for her skill, humor, and hope. Quentin J. Schultze, Ph.D., Executive Director, Gainey Institute for Faith and Communication, Calvin College --Blurb from reviewer

The Word Made Fresh invites us to look at church communications as an essential Scripture-based, Gospel-inspired, and Christ-centered ministry. Rooting us firmly in Scripture and an understanding of communications practices and pitfalls, Gould challenges us to analyze all forms of church communication for their effectiveness in proclaiming Christ to the world. Rev. Susan M. Lang, Director, RevWriter Resources, LLC, church consultant, and author of numerous church leadership resources including Our Community: Dealing with Conflict in Our Congregation --Blurb from reviewer

The Word Made Fresh is essential reading for anyone who is or wants to be involved in church communication. Frederick H. Gonnerman, author, Getting the Word Out: The Alban Guide to Church Communications --Blurb from reviewer

You know a book has influenced you when you repeat stories from it to others--that's the case here time and time again. Dr. Gould combines excellent writing skills, liturgical knowledge and savvy, appreciation for research, people smarts, and dry humor to help you understand God's calling to a communications ministry and the steps to take in helping the church make disciples who make disciples.

The Word Made Fresh provides exercises for both individuals and groups that guide those involved in church communications toward a better process and more productive results. And it's all done within a faith-based, spiritual framework, defining church communications as a ministry and encouraging both a prayerful and practical approach. This book is a great tool for church groups, laity, theology students and staff, as well as any individual seeking to improve his/her communication skills. Two people have tried to borrow mine already after looking through a few pages and seeing the many practical tips and resources inside.

This Book is Required Reading If You Care About Your Parish's Communications. Meredith does a fantastic job of dissecting all the communication challenges facing Parishes today. She shows in easy to understand concepts how to overcome these hurdles. I gave my copy to my Pastor and have put on our Parish Council agenda to buy copies for the members. I am sure you will want to do the same after you read this book. I am sure it is pretty much going to be dog-eared within just a couple of months, it will get that much use.
