Tiber River Review: The Church and the New Media
Popes John Paul II and Benedict XI have both expounded on the necessity of using the internet to evangelize. The Church and New Media gives concrete examples of how this has been done and suggestions to those who want to use these new media successfully. Those familiar with the Catholic blogosphere will recognize the names of Fr. Robert Barron, Jennifer Fulwiler, Mark Shea, Father Dwight Longenecker and Lisa Hendey. These big-name bloggers and others talk about how they started on the internet, what messages they try to spread and what they have learned to avoid.
There is a chapter on the new media efforts by the Archdiocese of Boston that discusses how they integrate all their new media (basically different versions of electronic communications) efforts, as well as how they encourage the parishes to use electronic media.
