Chris Chatteris

The pervasiveness of the media is a dramatic "sign of the times" which both enlightens and annoys. This book argues that the church is challenged in multiple ways to respond to the secular media and to use the media more effectively in its own mission. The author examines various media forms-print, radio, TV, film, cellphones (the internet will be considered in a separate volume in this series)-and raises important questions about how the church interacts with them. Examples are given from media contexts around the world. It concludes with the question "Is a Christian Al Jazeera" possible?

Chris Chatteris was born in Northern Rhodesia (Zambia) in 1950 and went to school in Zimbabwe and the UK, where he joined the Jesuits. He came to South Africa in 1985 and has worked in KZN and Johannesburg as a parish priest, seminary teacher, administrator, retreat-giver and journalist. He is presently working for the Jesuit Institute in Johannesburg.

Signs of the Times Books
Doing theology in the 21st century demands attention to the most important events, people, and themes of contemporary society. This is the focus of the "Signs of the Times" series. Each title, "The Church and ….", engages in theological reflection and analysis of a significant "sign of the times". Written in a non-academic style, the books present clear interpretations of the response of Christian faith to the world today.
