The Social Christian

There’s no such thing as a ‘social media expert.’

How do I know that? I heard a social media expert say it, and I, as a social media expert-in-training, agreed.

I know that’s confusing, so let me lay it out a bit more clearly. Social media is a brand new medium, forum, technology, and landscape all-in-one. It’s virgin soil, an unknown quantity, an untapped resource, and a leaderless populace. No one truly knows what he or she is doing; we’re all just experimenting. As soon as we establish something resembling rules or best practices, the social media landlords (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) alter our social media reality, making all of our agreed upon rules null and void. Or, worse, those of us who pretend to have some influence over the wave of social media we’re surfing on may one day find that our social networks have begun to evolve independently of us, and we may crash into the shore.

Finding Faith Inside the Big Blue Box

**Out of Print**

“What’s Doctor Who about?”

Non-Whovians (or should I say “Potential Whovians”) often ask me that question. Perhaps you’ve received similar questions. If so, how do you answer them?

“It’s about an alien who looks like a human, but he has two hearts and a sonic screwdriver and a space ship/time machine that looks like a police box.”

It’s a good answer, but it doesn’t do the show justice.

Christianity is largely the same.

“What’s Christianity about?”

Much like Doctor Who, following Jesus has to be experience before it can fully understood. (Of course, the same applies to bow ties and fezzes. You can’t judge them till you’ve worn them.)

I’d like to help you on that experience. Using Doctor Who as a backdrop, I’ve written a 30-day devotional that will walk you through some basic elements of your Christian faith.

Do you love Doctor Who?
Do you love Jesus and want to understand His Word better?

Then, we’ve got something for you, something far more enjoyable than a bus tour across the diamond planet Midnight and far more nourishing than fish fingers and custard.

The Killer-Isms

“Killer-Isms” are deadly philosophies hiding, not only in our society, but in our own hearts and minds, seeking to kill us from within. Materialism, moralism, humanism, etc.—all spell death to the soul. Perhaps you’ve noticed this in your own life? If not, perhaps it’s time to ask a deep question, “What exactly do you believe?”
