“@stickyJesus: how to live out your faith online is a one-of-a-kind combination of teaching, growing, nurturing, and challenging all of us to dive into the invisible, thriving world of the Internet. This book is about love in action, giving practical advice about how to change a world, and be ‘in’ yet not ‘of’ it. I learned from this work, and I know you will too.”

Imagine if we lived at a hinge in history when ordinary people like you could be mobilized as witnesses—as if Jesus Himself were making new nets for many to fish with? Tami and Toni make the convincing case that this is no fantasy.And they are savvy, credible, and flat-out devoted-to-Jesus witnesses, perfectly suited to help us humbly bear the transforming presence of Jesus into this new, networked place called the Internet.

Jesus said that when the Holy Spirit had come upon us we would be His witnesses to Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). The Internet and the exponential growth of social media is the new “ends of the earth.” Tami and Toni’s clear and readable new book, @stickyJesus, is the Christian handbook for understanding how best to navigate this new place.

The world we live in has changed. The days of sitting on the front porch with our neighbors are mostly over and a new day of Tweeting, Facebook, and texting has arrived. We can resist culture all we want but it is the world in which we live. How will the church respond? Authors Tami Heim and Toni Birdsong want to help the church navigate through the challenges of social media with their new book @stickyJesus. This is a helpful and thought-changing book with the potential to help pastors and church leaders become more Kingdom mindedand achieve greater results in reaching people for Christ.

As a ministry leader I am always looking for new ways to show and share the saving power of Jesus Christ. @stickyJesus has opened my mind and heart to all that God is making possible through social media. We were born for such a time as this and this is our chance to claim the World Wide Web for the glory of God.
