I finally finished The Church of Facebook: How the Hyperconnected Are Redefining Community by Jesse Rice and it has totally changed how I view Facebook.  You have probably read Suitable Helper and Come Just as You Are.  Both of those were greatly inspired by Church of Facebook.  Since I have officially finished the book, I thought I’d give a quick review of the book.

Throughout the entire book, Rice uses examples that connect well with how Facebook is redefining the way that we interact with one another.  Examples ranging from the Millennium Bridge, Willis Carrier and The Palm Islands among others.  Jesse Rice took the material from stories that we may have heard before and applies it in a hyperconnected world.  For those of you that are in any form of ministry in middle school to the college age, I believe this book should be on the list of your must read books.  It’ll challenge you live in a way that could quite well be different than how you are currently living.

The chapters of the book are as follows:

Connection

Revolution

Dispensation

Illumination

Adaptation

Regeneration
