I am a contributor to a compilation of essays on how the new media is shaping ministry. The book, The New Media Frontier:Blogging, Vlogging, and Podcasting for Christ, is now available and offers a wide ranging set of topics for both would be communicators as well as those who are just curious.
Perhaps most significantly, it features contributions by some of the most widely read and experienced new media contributors (Joe Carter, Hugh Hewitt, Mark D. Roberts, Roger Overton, John Mark Reynolds) as well as the lunch-bucket variety pastor-blogger like me.
My chapter on "Blog as Microwave Community", looks at what the new media can--and cannot do--in helping to foster Christian community. I'd love to hear your feedback.
You can get the book here.
