Digital Ecclesiology: A Global Conversation
Authors: Heidi Campbell et al
Digital Ecclesiology: A Global Conversation explores theological issues and challenges churches have been faced with due to social distancing and required social-cultural adaptations brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. This book follows on from the eBook “The Distanced Church”, which explored religious leaders and scholar responses to the forced move into doing church online during the pandemic. This edited collection address in greater depth the ecclesiological questions raised when churches embrace digital media and culture in their mission and ministry. As she argues in her previous, a church’s technological choices have often unforeseen theological implications for faith communities. Digital Ecclessiology presents 11 essay with authors from 7 different countries, who reflect on the culture of the church revealed through moving from offline to online worship, and the understanding of religious community that has unfolded during the pandemic. Overall this collection identifies core questions and debates about the nature of the Church raised by the embrace and integration of digital media by Christian groups worldwide.
