Overview

"If the church does not begin to encompass the online world in its ministry, it risks losing even more of its eroding influence in society."

With these words Andrew Careaga challenges believers to creatively and effectively use all leading-edge technology. Only by entering this new world can believers reach the "Net Generation," a complex mix of young people who will shape the world the church of the 21st century. This cyberspace generation is desperately searching for the supernatural and a personal touch. There is no area where the presence of Christians is more imperative. With the foundational information in the book, you can develop an on-line discipleship strategy to engage and capture this frontier generation.

“Careaga writes with wit and wisdom about the growing gulf between the church and contemporary, high-tech culture.”

—Quentin Schultze Professor of Communication, Calvin College co-author of Internet for Christians

"It's a www World. I know of no better guide to this new world than eMinistry."

—Leonard Sweet Author of Aqua Church

"Andrew Careagas' book is a clear, careful analysis of the Net Generation, this complex mix of young people unlike any other in human history who for better or worse will inherit and shape the twenty-first Century. "

—Winkie Pratney Author of Fire on the Horizon
Youth evangelist for Ministry of Helps

"A must read for anyone who cares about reaching our youth for Jesus."

—Mark M. Stephenson Director of CyberMinistry Ginghamsburg Church, Tipp City, Ohio

    Christian strategy and insight

    Andrew Careaga is uniquely placed to help us understand the times we live in, from a Christian and Internet viewpoint. He's a professional journalist, working in the academic and youth-oriented environment of a university PR 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 'E-vangelism'). The main focus is the modern world and what he terms the 'N-generation' (web-savvy young people) and how we can effectively communicate with them 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 which even 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 is essential. It is still largely true that the church has yet to realize the significance of the Internet and how it is changing society. Christians can so easily be 10-20 years behind in their understanding and methods. But 'the past is a different country'. We cannot engage with today's culture without understanding it. Unless we do, we may condemn ourselves to being only easily able to reach the 'once-churched' instead of the 'never-churched'. Therefore we must all have an advocacy role in enlightening the wider church about the power and effectiveness of the Internet - something which this book can achieve. I would encourage us all to do everything we can to give this book a very wide readership: - Ask your public library and church bookstall to stock it. - Review the book in any publication or website. - Link to this Barnes and Noble page about the book from any website.
