Kregel Publications eMinistry

From the Publisher: The author challenges believers to creatively and effectively use leading-edge technology to reach the "Net Generation," a complex mix of young people who will shape the world and the church of the 21st Century. Quentin Schultze writes, "Coreaga writes with wit and wisdom about the growing gulf between the church and contemporary, high-tech culture. Leonard Sweet adds, "It's a www World. I know of no better guide to this new world than eMinistry."

Andrew Careaga is uniquely placed to help us understand the times we live in, from an Internet viewpoint. He's a trained journalist, working in the academic and youth-oriented environment of a university publicrelations department, and is also a youth pastor. So his insights into postmodernism, youth culture and effective communication are informed by firsthand experience. This is not a theoretical abstract book in any way.Neither is it about technical web issues or even primarily about what Christians are doing to use the Internet for evangelism (the subject of his previous book). The main focus is the modern world and what he terms the 'N-generation' (web-savvy young people) and how we can effectively communicate withthem online. The quotations and footnotes display a wide breadth of research, understanding and insight. At the end of each chapter are topics for further investigation and questions to consider. Some are very appropriate for small group/seminar discussion. This very readable book deserves the widest possible circulation. There is just no other book whicheven attempts to cover the same ground. It should be required course reading for Bible college and seminary students. For anyone who wishes to understand the issues of relating to the modern world through the Web, it's essential. I would encourage us all to do everythingwe can to cause this book to be read as widely as possible: - Ask your public library and church bookstall to order it. - Write a book review for your church newsletter- Link to this page from any website
