CRISIS IN COMMUNICATION

The Christian Church in all its branches has become acutely conscious of the fact that our modern mass media of communication is functioning for the most part on something far lower than a Christian level, and also that the Church, realizing that it must also use modern means of communication, is scarcely being true to her Lord in what she is communicating, and the way she is doing it. The media must be claimed for Christ as a part of God's creation and must be used in such a way that His image is not blurred or distorted. Malcolm Boyd, a clergyman of the Episcopal Church, became such only after he had long been at home in radio and television studios. He knows whereof he speaks, and is uniquely equipped to deal with the subject of man's communication and its relevance in the life of the contemporary church. In this book we find both constructive criticism and helpful suggestion. Any clergyman would be helped by it as he seeks to establish points of contact with the world about him. It is a ""must"" for all those who are directly at work in this field.
