Some more book news (the four Aggie Catholic contributors to the book are highlighted in Maroon):
“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. The book shows not only how the Church can exist in the midst of this digital revolution, but how she can use it to effectively proclaim the Gospel.

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.
Gig 'em and God Bless!

Just now saw this post. That's so cool that so many Aggie Catholics are contributing! I was baptized Catholic and spent my first two years of college at A&M (leaving, ironically, because it was too religious), so maybe that's an honorable mention? :)
