Description

A Theology for a Mediated God introduces a new way to examine the shaping effects of media on our notions of God and divinity.

In contrast to more conventional social-scientific methodologies and conversations about the relationship between religion and media, Dennis Ford argues that the characteristics we ascribe to a medium can be extended and applied metaphorically to the characteristics we ascribe to God-just as earlier generations attempted to comprehend God through the metaphors of father, shepherd, or mother.

As a result, his work both challenges and bridges the gap between students of religion and media, and theology.
