“The Church and New Media” brings together innovators, visionaries, and experts on the relationship between faith and technology, packaging their wisdom into the definitive book on New Media and the Church.

Besides the contributors above, “The Church and New Media” will also feature a number of sidebars. These will highlight relevant Church teachings on New Media, as well as Catholic innovators who are using New Media well.
And, as if gathering this wonderful group wasn’t enough, there is also the possibility that Archbishop Timothy Dolan and/or Cardinal Sean O’Malley—two heroes of mine--will contribute a Preface or Foreword for the book.
