Perspectives Weekly - Media and the new evangelization

December 30, 2011
Do we need modern media to proclaim the Good News? We have a duty to evangelize, but is there a wrong way to evangelize? Can modern media, such as Youtube and Facebook, effectively communicate the depth of revelation? Can a tweet bring you one step closer to an encounter with Jesus, the icon of the Living God?
On this encore presentation of Perspectives: The Weekly Edition, we speak with Father Robert Barron of Word on Fire Ministries, creator and host of the 10-part documentary series Catholicism, as well as Nicole Myshak of the John Paul II Media Institute, who produced Dogmatic Theology. They share their perspective on the role of new media -- both the opportunities and the inherent challenges. We will also learn how their ministries use new media to invite people to rediscover the Faith.
