A Great New Blog and Great New Book

OUTSPOKEN: Conversations on Church Communication

Tim Schraeder of Center for Church Communication asked 60+ authors and creatives (including me) to contribute some thoughts on the importance of communication in the big-C Church as well as in small-c local churches. The chapters are just 500 words which means the authors got to their point quickly and you can read it in short sittings.

The book has turned into a really fun project with a great back story and it’s being officially released at this year’s Story Conference. Go check out the book website and if you’ve read it, let me know what you think.


I’ve also been introduced to a great, new blog called tech.soul.culture: Reflections on Technology, Culture, and Christian Spirituality written by former software developer turned Seattle Pacific University Professor David Sterns.

What I love about Dr. Sterns posts is that he has 20 years of software development under belt as well as a doctorate in science and technology studies (or STS, “science, technology and society”). He’s also a deeply reflective Christian and these elements combine into thoughtful engagement with technology and culture. He written some great thoughts on defining technology, instrumentalism, and culture as well as reviews of books like Alone Together, Here Comes Everybody. He recently wrote a review of my book From the Garden to the City that is kind, but also offers some helpful critiques.

If you’re interested in technology, culture, and Christianity, go subscribe to his blog asap!

In my day job, I work at Dallas Theological Seminary, and at night I write Bible software for countries whose leaders could be called "overlords." This one time, I wrote a book about technology and Christian faith. You can find out more about what I'm up to at http://j.hn/.

  1. Hi!
