Safe Sanctuaries: Safe Sanctuaries in a Virtual World
Safe Sanctuaries in a Virtual World, the latest addition to the Safe Sanctuaries series, addresses the challenges of ministry that have arisen in the face of rapidly changing technology, sometimes referred to as the digital age.
Technology now pervades our lives on almost every level; it is nearly inescapable and, as Melton and Foster point out, easily accessible and increasingly user-friendly and intuitive, streamlining the way we work and interact with one another and the world around us.
Safe Sanctuaries in a Virtual World is both timely and practical, covering topics such as
- copyright in the digital age
- the application of law to the life of the church
- the basics of ministry in a virtual world
