Media Evangelism in the Global South
Thursday, November 2, 2006 @ 5:00 pm EST
The phenomenal rise of evangelical Christianity in the global South during the past thirty years has been accompanied by the expanded use of new media, including radio and television. This presentation outlines an ongoing research project into the historical origins, systemic achievements, and interpretive implications of the American missionary radio broadcasting enterprise in Africa, Asia, and Latin America during its formative era, 1945 to 1970.
