In light of more recent conversations about religion and its import as a factor in the global geopolitical and cultural spheres, augmented by the "contracting" of relationship among people and nations, Communication and the Global Landscape of Faith highlights geographical, architectural, and a partial issues as significant and edifying dimensions of the study of communication and religion. Insights are gleaned through the prism of the philosophical, built, performative, political, and intercultural landscapes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This valuable and wide-ranging collection of essays will benefit both practitioners and scholars of religious communication. Practitioners will discover that the truths they seek, even those which are eternal and unchanging, must be communicated in infinitely variable physical and mental landscapes. Scholars will discover that religions are not simply manifestations of deeper social processes but generate supreme realities that profoundly structure believers' communication. Such understandings are vital in fostering the interfaith dialogues that are so needed in our world today. -- Mark Ward Sr., University of Houston-Victoria
Adrienne Hacker Daniels has given readers an innovative collection of essays that may help reshape the way we conceptualize religious communication as a discipline of study. Freshly written with scholarly flair, the contributions to this edited volume point a way forward in our discussions about faith and faiths in a global perspective. Communication and the Global Landscape of Faith is a timely gift to the academy. -- Daniel S. Brown Jr., Grove City College
In Communication and the Global Landscape of Faith, Daniels offers a timely, necessary, and invaluable contribution to the ongoing scholarly conversation about communication and religion. Featuring established and emerging scholars, this collection offers a fresh look at enduring and contemporary questions resting at the intersection of faith, communicative practices, and the global human community's search for meaning. -- Janie Harden Fritz, Duquesne University
This remarkable edited collection covers a brilliant spectrum of contexts for the role of faith in public discourse, and demonstrates the crucial need for more of the same kind of research. Each chapter seizes the reader with a sense of relevance and currency. I highly recommend this collection, in whole or in part, for anyone studying the intersection of faith and communication. -- J. Matthew Melton, Lee University
