A Pew Study reports that only 2% of America's twelve million bloggers claim "religion, spirituality or faith" as their main topic. This leaves a great mission field in cyberspace, say contributors to The New Media Frontier, because the latest forms of communication present so many opportunities to promote the cause of Christ in other topics and fields. Before blindly jumping in, however, Christians need to weigh the possibilities against the consequences, and then proceed with the practical discernment and grace this book provides.
With a foreword by national radio host Hugh Hewitt-who has been at the forefront of the new media movement among Christians-editors Roger Overton and John Mark Reynolds (along with an impressive list of other new media experts) survey the current landscape and explore specific areas in which God's people can creatively expand their reach to a lost world. By stressing the urgency for Christian involvement, unearthing the dangers, and advising readers on how to use this media with different audiences, this book equips believers to advance, demonstrate, and utilize the Christian worldview in this exciting realm.

Stacey5 Stars Out Of 5October 27, 2008StaceyThe New Media Frontier: Blogging, Vlogging, and Podcasting for Christ is a valuable tool with some great information for beginners. This basic information resource is the work of various authors and editors John Mark Reynolds and Roger Overton. The book has a great techno look to it that draws the readers eye, and good information to stimulate his thoughts. The glossary is also helpful. In fact, the only complaint that I have about this book is that its a pain to read in pdf format on the computer!
