Douglas Estes of SimChurch: Episode 27

Listen to this espisode of Social Media Church to hear a conversation with Douglas Estes, author of SimChurch: Being the Church in the Virtual World (Zondervan, 2009.) We talked about his insightful perspective about churches using technology, and what he thinks might be next for the church in a virtual world. I like this book’s approach, because it wrestles with issues of ecclesiology and technology. I also read an excerpt from the book on this podcast, a particularly poignant thought about what it really means to be “present.”
