Comments The Church and New Media: Blogging Converts, Internet Activists, and Bishops Who Tweet

  1. This week I have completed nine years of blogging and so I can say that I have some perspective on the growth of the so called Catholic New Media Nine years ago I could pretty much read every post in the Catholic blogosphere during a short lunch Catholic audio on the internet was extremely limited and podcasting was still a couple years into the future The growth of new media for Catholics has been quite an interesting thing to watch.Bearing that in mind I was quite happy to review the new book [...]


  2. In The Church and New Media, Brandon Vogt has collected some of the hot names in Catholic new media and tapped into their wisdom The book explores blogging and podcasting, but also social media and parish applications of all of the above There are conversion stories that were rooted in online searches and communities that have never met in person.It s a fast read, but one that I ll be revisiting Though Brandon s role was as editor, in the introduction and conclusion he ties things up nicely.It s [...]


  3. If you work in any type of ministry, you should read this book Just as Paul went to the Areopagus because that s where the Greeks were, so the Church needs to reach into the digital sphere because that s where modern man is at The greatest compliment I can give this book is that I have begun to put together thoughts about how I and those I work with need to evaluate how we re doing in this sphere and be bold enough to try new things.


  4. The Church and New Media The Church and the New Media Blogging Converts, Online Activists, And Bishops Who Tweet CNM is an inspirational guide to the Catholic vanguard taking the Mission to the New Media CNM is a map to the Catholic Online world Brandon Vogt edited and contributed to this brilliant and exhilarating volume.From the first page, I just enjoyed reading The Church and the New Media The writing is top notch, and all of the contributors provide thoughtful comments.If you wonder what tw [...]


  5. The Church and New Media, Blogging Converts, Online Activists, and Bishops who Tweet is one of my favorite books of 2012, at least so far I have an interest in the use of social media, sometimes called new media, so the topic jumped out at me Brandon Vogt, a relative youngster at 25 at the time of the book s publication, made a good decision when he chose to ask a variety of people to write a chapter each He has people such as Fr Robert Barron, Mark Shea, Lisa Hendey, and others take a specific [...]


  6. In his book, The Church and New Media Blogging Converts, Online Activists, and Bishops Who Tweet, Brandon Vogt has compiled writings from a who s who in the Catholic word of new media, including Fr Robert Barron, Jennifer Fulwiler, Mark Shea, Fr Dwight Longenecker, Matt Warner, Lisa Hendey, and many others.The book has received rave reviews from the likes of Archbishops Dolan and Chaput The foreword was written by Cardinal Sean O Malley, O.F.M and the afterword was written by Archbishop Timothy [...]


  7. This is such an incredible book that is a must read for clergy and lay people I was so inspired by all the contributors to the book Not only does this book invite us to reconsider how we use our personal New Media avenues as building up the Church and the Gospel, but also reminds us of our call to evangelize through the use of New Media This book covers everything I am not the most tech saavy person, and this book answered many questions and concerns I had about venturing into the New Media worl [...]


  8. This book is a must read for anyone who is interested in sharing the faith The saying used to be that if you couldn t share your business proposal on the back of a napkin or during an elevator ride then you might not have a winning plan Something similar holds true with the Church and New Media, we have to be guides on the social and new media byways importantly we have to be able to use the tools and comnunicate the faith authentically Brandon has done a great job editing this book and sharing [...]


  9. If you are involved in any kind of parish ministry, this is a must read We overlook using new media like texting, Facebook pages, blogging, and Twitter as ways to get out messages about our ministries One example given, a college based parish had a hard time getting parishioners to register so they invited everyone to bring their cell phones to Mass one Sunday On that Sunday, the priest announced for everyone to pull out their cell phones and text a certain number The parish was then able to fol [...]


  10. I feel the book simply backed up a belief I have always held that if the apostles here today some of them would blog and obviously use the resources we have at hand today Yet I strongly believe some, and Jesus included in this would not, it goes to that precise word of god thing, which can be used incorrectly I think sometimes But I also wonder if Jesus would Tweet , I think he would of given us the beatitudes in a manner like that but not his parables The new media doesnt really answer these qu [...]


  11. Brandon Vogt has compiled a great group of essay with regard to the New Evangelization s moving into the digital continent It covers a great many topics from the who s who of the American contribution of the digital revolution in the Church Anyone looking for insights about the Church s understanding of New Media and the Internet should look no further.


  12. Vogt brings together a very knowledgeable group of people to talk about the Church and New Media I love the fact that each writer is an expert on the area that he she is talking about These writers are in the trenches so to speak and they bring their experience to bear here It s a very informative read.


  13. The first chapter by Fr Robert Barron makes the book worth a read There are other good stories throughout, but for the most part it s a very good reference book for anyone curious how the internet and technology is used in the Catholic faith.
