We have been waiting a long time for this book - the first printed publication purely about using the Internet to share the Gospel. It was worth the wait.
Careaga offers a book which is very understandable to someone not yet online (and technical terms, when used, are defined clearly). Yet there is much to help the experienced web user.
He begins with an introduction to the Web, showing how it is impacting today's world, and the church's response. Advice is offered on how to start online.
A valuable section on using chat rooms and email for personal witness gives warnings of the many pitfalls to avoid. Very encouraging are specific instances of people being touched through this method.
The use of evangelistic web-sites is discussed, again with many illustrations. Careaga highlights the importance of creating sites which are designed to be evangelistic, rather than just hoping non-Christians may happen to find a site which is primarily written for Christians. He explains the key to this - pages which are about subjects that non-Christians are looking for online. The importance of titles and meta descriptions are also detailed, and how to promote web-pages on Search Engines or in other ways.
This is a vital book. Whether or not you are already online, it shows how to have an effective worldwide ministry from home. Never again need someone lack opportunity for witness. The housebound, the disabled, the retired, the young; churches, organizations or individuals - all Christians have a new way of reaching the world for Christ. May this book encourage thousands more to see the opportunities and get started. If you have a church bookstall, this book should be on it.
As one who has written an online Guide to Web Evangelism with a similar agenda, I warmly recommend it.
