NEW MEDIA AND THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY
EXPERIENCES FROM THE USA AND AFRICA. A priest of the Diocese of Kumba, in Cameroon, Fr. Wilfred Emeh writes a fascinating account of the christian family in its encounter with the New Media. In his research and stories, he highlights people who have been drawn away from their family by cultural and economic forces. We meet the aged Americans left to die alone in nursing homes, an institution unknown in Cameroon. We meet the Cameroonian immigrants, working slavishly in the New World to provide for their family at home, unaware of the disadvantages of being so far away from the family. Paperback. 162 pages.
