Brother Careaga's book is packed full of useful and powerful information for all aspects of Internet Evangelism in response to Jesus' command "... I will make you fishers of men." Matthew 4:19 (NIV). You will find information such as:
-- how to size up the fishing rod (the computer and Internet connection)
-- where to find the best fishing spots (chat rooms, E-mail, etc.)
-- and even which type of bait to use (methods of witnessing over the Internet).
E-vangelism is essential to any Christian that currently uses or plans to use the Internet for any reason. You never know when God is going to put you in touch with someone who needs to hear the Good News. This book will prepare you for that encounter.
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.
Perhaps the greatest battle the modern Christian faces is apathy. In the pages of this book, we find that their is a real "subculture" out there. If we are to become true "minister of the Gospel" we must take advantage of every mass communication tool possible.
The Internet, while surely not being the last frontier is certainly the latest and greatest opportunity we have.
Offering practical advice for anyone seeking to be a true ambassador for Christ on the Internet; E-vangelism: Sharing The Gospel Through Cyberspace , is a must read for the serious Christian in todays modern world.
We either make the most of this opportunity, or we blow it, this book shows how to make the most of the opportunity we have.
