    Product Description

    Many of us are "always on"--scrolling through social media, checking email, or searching the web. New media spaces can be sites and instruments of God's unconditional love, but they can also nurture harmful conditions and become sources of anxiety, jealousy, and despondency. How can we discern, articulate, and embody ways new media (including social media) can nurture healing Christian community?

    Always On provides useful tools for helping students and congregants understand the world of social media and engage it faithfully. It traces the impact of social media on the Christian life and enables Christian communities to address its use in constructive, pastoral ways. The book examines how new media use shapes a person's theology and how it can communicate and embody visions of the good life. Discussion questions and sample exercises for each chapter are included.

    About the Series
    The Theology for the Life of the World series discerns, articulates, and commends visions of flourishing life in light of God's self-revelation in Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ is God come to dwell among humans, to be, speak, and act "for the life of the world" (John 6:51). The diverse and multifaceted books in this series contribute to the task of discerning and pursuing the flourishing of all in God's creation. They share the conviction that theology is vital to exploring the character of true life in diverse settings and orienting us toward it.
