Creative Communication: Digital Creativity and Theology in Dialogue

Daniella Zsupan-Jerome

Abstract


This essay examines digital creativity from a theological perspective, focusing on its potential to serve the transmission of faith.  Creativity is a contested term both in the fields of digital media scholarship and the Christian theological tradition. Some express reservation about the possibility or value of creativity in both digital communication and the theological task of the transmission of faith.  On the other hand, others affirm digital creativity as the next opportunity in the long line of visual and artistic media used in the history of the Christian tradition in the service of the transmission of faith.   A constructive approach to digital creativity also reveals it potential for theological education as a pedagogical approach that fosters understanding toward appropriation and the effective transmission of the content of faith.
