Electronic Church in the Digital Age : Cultural Impacts of Evangelical Mass Media (Hardcover)
About this item
Communication scholars examine how the televangelism of the 1980s and 1990s has moved out of mainstream media into specialized digital media where it continues to influence a large number of people. The first volume considers how evangelical media shape evangelical culture in terms of constructing the evangelical identity, constructing the evangelical community, and constructing the other. The second volume, on how evangelical media engage American culture, discusses such topics as money and the electronic church: decoding Dave Ramsey's debt-free gospel, and American apocalypse: portrayals of Islam and Judaism in the post-9/11 electronic church.
