    One thought on “The Digital Cathedral: Networked Ministry in a Wireless World”

    1. What will the church of the future look like? How will we remain agile, attentive, relevant, and alive? In this book Keith Anderson demonstrates both practical solutions, and avenues of engagement rooted in deep faithful living and a changing culture of how we "do church".I especially appreciated the multiple examples of vibrant, "out of the box" ministry that is reaching people where they are.

    2. Found this book an excellent combination of how ministry is being done creatively, within and outside the walls of a church. We are living in world where people are thinking differently about faith, God, and how it may or may not relate to their lives. How do we as leaders connect, meet with, and build meaningful relationships in todays digital world? I found the book informative as well as thought provoking.

The Digital Cathedral is a must-read for 21st century ministry leaders and practitioners who want to remain engaged, relevant, and meaningful in a dynamic religious w [...]

    4. Anderson poses much food for thought in what it means to be on mission in this digital age. I am not sure that I ever quite bought into the virtual world we inhabit as being a substitute for the brick and mortar monstrosities that dot the world's face. The chapters all offer subject matter worthy of discussion as the basis for delving further into faith matter in the modern world.
