The New Media Research Fellows are a group of scholars,
journalists, and pastors. In addition to
conducting case studies, we’ve also been hard at work on own theological
reflection. We are pleased to offer you
this collection of theological essays, each written by one of our research
As you read, you will note that we come from a variety of
theological worldviews—some of us stand in a Protestant Reformed world, others
come from a Process Theology view of God and human life. We are Catholic and non-denominational as
well. Some of us are historians, others
are writers and pastors. Each of us
writes through our theological lens and each of us takes up a particular
theological question relating to social media and new media. We don’t think you need to try to synthesize
our work. Rather, accept it as a
variegated prism through which we explore social media and new media.
Each essay includes study
questions at the end to help you go deeper into the topic, or help others
you may be leading to go deeper. We hope
you find the study questions helpful.
This work is based on the six descriptive case studies we conducted
in 2011. You will find many references
herein to that work. Explore the Findings tab for more information about the rest of our work.
