"Controversies in Theology and Media" is an attempt to provide a space for dialogue between theology and media studies from new directions and especially examining the differences from North and South Perspectives. It highlights controversial issues typically covered on a Theology and Media course, such as freedom of expression, including from an eastern perspective, and recent film phenomenons such as the Da Vinci Code. It relates media issues with the issues of theology of the imagination, theology of aesthetics and ethical issues. This book highlights the importance of recognising the power of the media and the culture in which it takes place as well as its significance to theology. The book also examines the question of how theological thinking can become relevant and effective in the public arena and make an impact on the media and their practices.
