How do religious audiences react to and use the media? How do institutional religious influences and expectations affect how they experience media news and entertainment?

Drawing on theory and empirical research, contributors to Religion and Mass Media explore these questions from Jewish, Roman Catholic, Evangelical, Protestant, Fundamentalist and Mormon audience perspectives. The book looks at recent theoretical developments in the sociology of religion and communication theory; offers an overview of specific religious beliefs; examines audience behaviour; and describes specific case studies including the use of gospel rap and contemporary music in black religious communities.

Review:

Religion And Mass Media is an audience-centered examination of the way a variety of Christian traditions experience media news and entertainment in the context of institutional religious influences and expectations. Drawing on social science theories and empirical research methodologies, the contributors explore responses from Roman Catholics, Fundamentalists, Evangelicals, mainline Protestants, Mormons, and other religious communities. In the first part, contributors set the framework by describing recent theoretical developments in the sociology of religion and communication theory. part two provides an overview of certain religious beliefs, part three looks at audience behavior, part four describes specific case studies (including one on rap music), and part five looks at the changing information environment and the future. -- Midwest Book Review
