Product Description

What does it mean "to do" church in the virtual world? Are internet campuses just niche ministries or the next step in the multi-site revolution? Will virtual churches be individualistic or actually encourage families to worship together? Can a virtual church be a missional church? Is it even possible or healthy "to be" the church in the virtual world?

If you are passionate about the church, outreach, and technology, and feel both excitement and concern about combining them, then these are just some of the questions you and other innovative followers of Jesus must grapple with. Rich in both biblical and current insight, combining exploration and critique, Simchurch opens a long overdue discussion you will want to get educated in rather than be left in the dark.

Publisher's Description

The meeting place for the church of tomorrow will be a computer screen. Don’t laugh, and don’t feel alarmed. The real-world church isn’t going anywhere until Jesus returns. But the virtual church is already here, and it’s poised for explosive growth. SimChurch invites you to explore the vision, the concerns, the challenges, and the remarkable possibilities of building Christ’s kingdom online. What is the virtual church, and what different forms might it take? Will it be an extension of a real-world church, or a separate entity? How will it encourage families to worship together? Is it even possible or healthy to “be” the church in the virtual world? If you’re passionate about the church and evangelism, and if you feel both excitement and concern over the new virtual world the internet is creating, then these are just some of the vital issues you and other postmillennial followers of Jesus must grapple with. Rich in both biblical and current insight, combining exploration and critique, SimChurch opens a long-overdue discussion you can’t afford to miss.

    A great read. Regardless of your views on the Virtual Church, this is a great book that looks at all sides of the argument, from a biblical prospective.
