Publisher's Description

<p>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 <em>The New Media Frontier</em>, 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.</p> <p>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.</p>

Publisher Description

A recent 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.
With a foreword by national radio host Hugh Hewitt — who has been at the forefront of the new media movement among Christians — editors John Mark Reynolds and Roger Overton join an impressive list of new media experts to survey the current landscape and explore specific areas in which God's people can creatively expand their reach to a lost world. The New Media Frontier makes a powerful case for Christian involvement in new media, while offering a realistic analysis of the dangers that are inherent in such communication forms. The judicious analysis, practical discernment, and passion for ministry conveyed in The New Media Frontier will equip Christians to advance, demonstrate, and utilize the Christian worldview in this exciting realm.
