Following political liberalization in Africa, religious leaders and activists have appropriated radio and television stations, newspapers and magazines, computers, and mobile phone networks for strengthening and expanding their communities, gaining public recognition for their organizations, promoting interreligious dialogue, or inciting religious violence. Claiming that media are rarely neutral vehicles of expression, New Media and Religious Transformation in Africa considers the challenges of balancing freedom of expression with freedom of religion. Contributors to this multidisciplinary volume explore the transformation of the religious messages, experiences, values, and practices brought about by the expanded use of media on the African continent.
