In Infinite Bandwidth: Encountering Christ in the Media, Eugene Gan navigates you faithfully through the digital world, encouraging frustrated parents not to throw out cell phones, ban the Internet, chuck computers, or pitch portable media devices. (That would be a mistake and—believe it or not—would be going against more than seven decades of Catholic teaching.)
From Church documents on social communications, Gan extracts seven principles or “media keys” that inform our use of media. The Church—and Gan—say that we must enter into the modern day Areopagus (the social and intellectual hub of ancient Athens where Paul preached to pagans) and use the media tools God has given us to make truth known and serve mankind.
Gan offers chapter after chapter of real-life experience of how to assess movies, games, and gadgets for you and your teens.
Infinite Bandwidth: Encountering Christ in the Media is way out front of the newest gizmo—and will stay there—thanks to its timeless principles that can be applied in all digital terrain, now and the future. Parents, educators, and students will put this book down with an entirely different attitude about the relationship between faith and media use.
