Schmidt acknowledges well-worn theological criticisms of the internet but proposes a "more productive and honest theological evaluation." A quick glance at Twitter or Facebook provides ample evidence for critics, but Schmidt looks deeper and discovers the central feature of the virtual…. The analysis here is...careful and sophisticated. Theologians and pastors should not dodge questions raised by increasing levels of online engagement in the life of the church, especially in the aftermath of 2020. This book will help them immeasurably and should find a home in graduate courses in sacramental and pastoral theology. Highly recommended.
