How is the emerging Internet culture affecting Christian churches? How can churches influence the formation of the "virtual" world? Should we expect to find a new form of Christian faith evolving on the web, or simply to encounter a fresh means of experiencing Christian traditions? To what extent must churches resist tendencies present in the new media? Using both theoretical and practical approaches, the authors look at interactions between the churches and the Internet. They examine new information and communication technologies, and the philosophies -- secular and religious -- that accompany them; suggest ways in which Christian communities can realise the Internets potential for supporting and strengthening the churchs witness; and give examples of how websites may assist in the rediscovery of the gospel and inspire worship based in Christianitys unique vision of Gods relationship to humanity.
