The Influence of Intra-personal Discourse on Interpersonal Communication in Fostering Relationships in a Digital Age
by Emmanuel Olusola

I am glad to see a new work from Fr. Emmanuel Olusola on the importance of dialogue. In a world with advanced technologies for communication, coupled with increasing polarization, it is a task of both the Church and of society to create dynamics for dialogue in order to address differences in peaceful ways and to foster spaces for meaningful encounters to find a path forward amidst challenging situations. As this book argues, such spaces begin with each individual through intra-personal dialogue. Most Rev. Donald Bolen Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada Member, Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, Vatican City, Italy Dr. Olusola’s book makes a significant contribution to knowledge about dialogue. The book not only establishes the interconnection between intra-personal and interpersonal dialogue, but also provides a fresh perspective in understanding dialogue from cultural, scientific, and Christian perspectives. Olusola convincingly presents the art of listening as an essential requirement for dialogue in the digital age. He summarily explores the power of dialogical conversation in building relationships. This book is a must for everyone interested in a peaceful family life, a rewarding workplace experience, and a better world at large. Rev. Fr. Gerald M. Musa, PhD Lecturer, Center for the Study of African Culture and Communication (CESACC) Catholic Institute of West Africa, Port Harcourt, Nigeria, West Africa
