Do you often chat with cyberfriends far into the night? Do you have a friend who buys way too much from online auctions? Have you ever wondered if you're hooked on the Net? If so, this book is for you. Andrew Careaga, a self-admitted Internet junkie, examines Internet addiction from a solid Christian perspective. He carefully balances the pros and cons of the Net while giving useful and realistic suggestions on saying "goodnight" when the party never ends.
With the explosive growth of the Internet has come a new type of pathology--one that many have labeled Internet addiction. But can anyone truly become addicted to the World Wide Web? Or is abusing the convenient accessibility of the Net a symptom of deeper spiritual, emotional, and psychological problems? How do you say "good night" to a party that never ends?
Careaga examines Internet addiction not only from a solid Christian perspective but also from a deeply personal point of view. As the author of two books on Internet ministry and a self- admitted Internet junkie, Careaga is intimately familiar with both the dangers and the prom- ises of extensive Internet use. Careaga shares his personal experiences as well as his research to help not only those ministering to "Netaholics" but also those who are themselves hooked on the Net.
