Churches everywhere are scrambling to get linked with Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. But are they ready for the Digital Reformation: the dramatic global shift in the nature of faith, social consciousness and relationship that these digital social media have ushered in? Tweet If You Heart Jesus brings the wisdom of ancient and medieval Christianity into conversation with contemporary theories of cultural change and the realities of social media, all to help churches navigate a landscape where faith, leadership and community have taken on new meanings.

From the Author:

"The Church is at a critical juncture as it attempts to respond to dramatic cultural changes related to new mobile, digital social media. Some of those changes are wonderfully liberating, inviting creative involvement in the practice of faith and the nurturing of community by believers and seekers of all stripes around the globe. Others, such as the restructuring of concepts of privacy, self-presentation, and relationship that seem to undermine notions of interpersonal, communal, and spiritual intimacy that are at the heart of much Christian practice, feel more troubling. Threatening, even." ~Elizabeth Drescher, Tweet If You ♥ Jesus: Practicing Church in the Digital Reformation

From the Back Cover:


"A must-read for anyone hoping to reach out to 'generation next' and make Church relevant, meaty, and accessible in America's tech-savvy culture. Elizabeth Drescher makes a convincing case for why digital social media and Church not only go hand in hand, but how new technologies can help us reclaim traditions from the past in updated ways for today." 
~ Donna Freitas, author of Sex and the Soul: Juggling Sexuality, Spirituality, Romance and Religion on America's College Campuses


"Although the book's intention is pastoral, written to guide Christian communities through the complexity of a new digital age, Tweet if You ♥ Jesus is one of the sharpest, most engaging books on the social media landscape that a reader of any background might hope to encounter. Writing with great wit, warmth, and clarity, Drescher mingles the medieval with the postmodern in a stunning, highly original analysis of the potential that digital social media holds for the creation of genuine community."
~Lisa Webster, senior editor of Religion Dispatches


"Brilliant, funny, well-written - this book will capture you and turn your world upside down. Drescher convincingly argues that social media are transforming the contemporary church much as the printing press transformed the medieval church. This book changes intimidation at the prospect of these technologies into enthusiasm for their potential." 
~ Margaret Benefiel, author of Soul at Work and The Soul of a Leader
