Product Description


A needed and detailed synthesis of Christian ontology/epistemology and contemporary communication theory. Will be a great help to the young scholar. (Dale Keller, Professor of Communication Arts, Taylor University)

In Communication, Media, and Identity, Robert Fortner takes us on a pilgrimage through Christian thought and social theory to a place where we can see the possibilities of communion and community in communication. This book achieves a rare synthesis of scholarship and evangelical Christian faith. (John P. Ferré, University of Louisville)

A brilliant book, written with the intelligence and beauty of a humanities craftsman. It's erudite, but smart: readable as ever, illustrations that sing, and wisdom with theory. It will speak to what the author calls his 'interpretive community' with the same phosphoresence as John Dewey's The Public and Its Problems did for his. Robert Fortner's definition of communication is the best I've ever seen, and organizing the book around it is a splendid idea. This is imperative reading for the field as a whole. (Clifford G. Christians, University of Illinois)

This should be a staple for communication undergrad and graduate students. Even if you are not a Christian, critical thinking requires investigation of many perspectives. Excellent source and excellent value through Amazon.
