I wrote a chapter in a new book, Theologians and Philosophers Using Social Media: Advice, Tips, and Testimonials edited by Dr. Thomas Jay Oord. It is a very interesting book if you are interested in social media, how it works, how to use it effectively etc.,
The insights in these 90+ essays are nothing short of inspiring! Their tips on best practices for social engagement, time management, social media as a resource for scholarship or creativity, technology and pedagogy, etc. will help readers tremendously.
The contributors are diverse. They include….
– Public theologians like Ben Corey, Brian McLaren, and Richard Rohr
– Younger scholars like Tripp Fuller, Jorey Micah, and Alexis Waggoner
– Biblical scholars like Michael Gorman, Joel Green, and Daniel Kirk
– Philosophers like Helen De Cruz, Aaron Simmons, and Kevin Timpe
– Establish scholars like James Crossley, Kwok Pui-lan, and Amos Yong
– Scholars outside North America like Deane Galbraith, RT Mullins, Hanna Reichel, and Atle Sovik
– Pastoral theologians like Patricia Farmer, Len Sweet, and Kurt Willems
– Historical theologians like Kim Alexander and Christine Helmer
– Science and religion scholars like Ron Cole-Turner, Karl Giberson, Lea Schweitz, and Jim Stump
– Constructive theologians like Oliver Crisp, Grace Ji-Sun Kim, and Jason Lepojärvi
– Ethicists like Miguel De La Torre, David Gushee, and Michael Hardin
…and the list goes on!
Whether the reader is an armchair theologian, a professional scholar, a graduate student, or simply interested in how social media is changing religious and philosophical studies, that reader will find Theologians and Philosophers Using Social Media of great help.
