It's certainly no secret that teenagers are perpetually connected to social media and mobile devices, but while we've analyzed as a culture how youth are connecting, we've neglected to understand why teenagers are drawn to the glow of the screen. Author and professor Andrew Zirschky explores in Beyond the Screen the reality that teenagers use these technologies in a desperate bid for an intimacy and depth of relationship largely lacking from face-to-face society--and the church.
Employing the latest ethnographic research on youth and digital media, along with theological reflection and interviews with teens themselves, Zirschky provides a deeper glimpse into the world of teens and social media and gives new direction and directives for ministering to Millennials. For youth leaders, pastors, and parents, Beyond the Screen informs, encourages, and offers a compelling new direction for youth ministry in the digital age.
