This project uses the medium of the podcast to prepare hearers of the Word for the Sunday preaching in the local parish. Participants in the podcast project were members of the project writer's own parish. The podcasts were specifically produced in relationship to homilies delivered in the local parish church.
Chapter One of this study considers the centrality of the Sunday liturgical assembly and the preaching that takes place in this venue. The chapter also examines the strong endorsement of new media technology for proclaiming the gospel in various ecclesiastical documents.
Chapter Two sets the foundation of the podcast as a medium in relationship to other media in modern communications theory and praxis.
Chapter Three reports the work of scripture scholars on the social science, historical and literary studies of the Gospel of Luke in regards to pericopes that are used in the course of the project. This material is reflected in the podcast scripts and homily transcripts in Appendix C.
Chapter Four describes the design and execution of the project including the communications technology employed and the qualitative measure used to gather project data.
Chapter Five weaves together the reports of project participants and draws conclusions from the project and suggestions for further study and experimentation.
