I am presently reading this book. I am to the how-to portion of the book. I agree with the why--to create space for conversation when face-to-face may not always be available. The various uses appeal to me: A blog can share news, cast vision, reach out, connect your staff, learn from others, and spread the word. I recommend this as a great read for youth workers who want to connect with students who dwell online.
Not just for churches! Good advice for any religious blogger. If I had read this book when it was published, I'd give it 5 stars. Alas, it's very dated now. However, a surprising amount of the information and advice is still good, enough to earn 3 stars.
