5 Must-Reads on Religion and Social Media


Keith Anderson has a list of must reads on religion and social media over at Religion Dispatches, and we’d like to recommend them to you as well.

Anderson is the co-author of Click2Save: The Digital Ministry Bible and notes that 2013 was an important year for new media and Jesus iphonereligious practice as tech users became more proficient in their use of technology and social media. As the faithful became more comfortable using these media in religious contexts, authors like Meredith Gould and Jana Marguerite Bennett are beginning to ask more sophisticated questions about the intersection of religious practice and technology.

Check out Anderson’s list when you get a chance–he includes brief overviews of each title. And, if you or someone you know is interested in writing a little bit more in-depth review of any of the titles, drop us a note at contact@secondnaturejournal.com and let us know. We are looking to launch a dedicated reviews channel this year and would love to have reviews for these books.
