Princeton Theological Review: The Church After Google
I just learned (from Stephen Garner's Greenflame blog) that the last Fall issue of the Princeton Theological Review was titled "The Church After Google" and as you might have guessed has lots of article pertinent to our topic. Let me quote the opening paragraph of Elizabeth Diass' Introduction:
The Internet is the printing press of the twenty-first century—it changes authority structures, democratizes information, and reframes societal expectations. The Princeton Theological Review’s fall issue is dedicated to examining church life and gospel proclamation with this phenomenon in mind. What issues should the church consider as it proclaims the gospel in a new technological climate of Google, the iPad, and Facebook? How do such global and local changes affect church ministry? What might they mean for the church’s self-presentation and engagement in public life? And at the core, what does it mean for the church to relate and communicate?
