"In the first edition of The Social Media Gospel, author Meredith Gould offered the basics to take the fear away from tackling social media, especially in ministry settings. Rather than replacing face-to-face connections, we learn the best ways to use online communication and social media to enhance our ministry. In her second edition, Gould adds even more detailed guidance for our individual needs. Both editions are gems for those wishing to properly navigate the ever-changing waters of social media."
