The Semitic and Greek worlds fused into the Christian thought and culture. It made Christianity the predominant religion of the West for two millennia. However, the predominantly literate Christianity could not make much in-road into the Asia and Africa which are predominantly oral in culture. In the West itself, the emergence of audio-visual-textual communication of the digital culture is challenging the predominantly rational and printed-text based Christian faith and practice. Theology is in birth pains for a smooth transition from a print-text based medieval-modern theology to digital culture existence.

The interrelationship between theology and communications need to be explored in detail. It requires placing theology and communication face-to-face. This article on ‘Interfaces between theology  and communication’ is, thus, a search for common areas between theologising and communication when the two are placed face to face with each other in a transparent fashion. Interface means the point of interaction or communication between two entities, groups or subjects. An honest investigation necessitates that we look at theology and communication  from both sides before we go to conclusions. However, being theologians and church communicators we will lay more stress on the implications of the communication revolution for theology and examine how communication insights can significantly challenge theologising.

THEOLOGICON Project


THEOLOGICON  is a name derived from the Greek words Theos+Logos+Eikon, referring to God’s self-communication in Jesus Christ, the Word (Logos) and the Image (Eikon) of the Father. Christianity is a religion of communication.

It calls for an aggiornamento of the content and method of theology and pastoral communication.
