Church Marketing Manual for the Digital Age (2nd ed)

The detailed manual has much to offer to help parishes to promote themselves better to those searching. Bryan's book comes as a result of many years of parish and school involvement, and so he is aware of some of the unique issues that parishes face, especially with limited personnel and finances.

(Fr Adrian Sharp Associate Judicial Vicar at Regional Tribunal of Brisbane/Queensland, Moderator at The Brisbane Oratory in Formation, former PP, Annerley, Coomera, Gold Coast - studied Canon Law at St Paul's University, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)

I find Bryan Foster’s new book will help considerably with marketing our Catholic parishes in the modern world. I am especially drawn to the chapters on Parish – School relationships and the uses of the internet, in particular the parish website.
(Fr Dan Ryan PP at Sunnybank Parish, former PP at Surfers Paradise Parish)

I would highly recommend this book to other parishes as a tool which could be used in groups or by the Parish Priest or Parish Administrator.
(Sonya Slayter, Parish Administrator - Surfers Paradise Parish)

If you are looking for a book that reaches to a younger audience then I highly recommend Bryan Foster! I was very excited to see that Bryan had published this incredible book! The manual guidelines can also be used for life strategies. He has been my mentor for over nine years. With his guidance, wisdom and intelligence I had been accepted into medical school and as a doctor will now pursue using his books for further motivation and advice on how to reach the digital age audience. Thank you, enjoy the read!

(Dr Amelia Lambers, The Royal Women's Hospital)

In an age when Church agencies are needing to find more effective ways to use media and communicate with a contemporary audience, this book provides some valuable insights and helpful hints. It is certainly worth a read. I would strongly recommend to Church leaders and agencies to purchase a copy.
