Roman Jacobson's Prism
Learning the language of Faith by The Rev. Dr. Ronald Hunt

Roman Jacobson’s Prism: Learning the Language of Faith is a dissertation that examines the common elements found in the catechetical documents of the three mainline Canadian churches—the Anglican, Roman Catholic, and United Church. Dr. Hunt employs Roman Jakobson’s communication theory for the analysis, as communication is central to faith education. Twenty-first century churches need to respond effectively to the faith education of their membership, and Dr. Hunt hopes that this work will inspire the churches of today to create faith responses to the challenges that the world faces now and into the future.
