“Before seeking solutions, we need to seek understandings.” ~ Seth Pierce
Tired of tone-deaf dialogues? Angry online exchanges? Misunderstandings? Seeking an Understanding makes communication research accessible for those who want to have better conversations. It brings together interpersonal and intercultural communication principles, with a practical pastoral approach.
Each chapter draws on contemporary issues, from Black Lives Matter to COVID-19 conspiracy theories, in order to illustrate the communication principles discussed. This book is an ideal starting point for anyone feeling overwhelmed and confused by the communicative chaos of the world around them.
Of course, understanding requires more than reading. At the end of each chapter you will find a few reflections and exercises that will challenge you to dig deeper into what you really understand and believe.
