The Vatican Dicastery for Communication offers this book as a guide to address the questions and difficulties that arise in presenting the Gospel message in the Digital World.
Many Christians are asking for inspiration and guidance since social media, which is one expression of digital culture, has had a profound impact on both our faith communities and our individual spiritual journeys, particularly in an environment where people interact, share experiences, and cultivate relationships unlike ever before.
The question is no longer whether to engage with the digital world, but how?
This book addresses how we, as individuals and Church members, are to live in the digital world and be genuinely present and attentive to each other journey along the ‘digital highways’.
Young people – as well as older generations – are asking to be met where they are, including on social media, because the digital world is ‘a significant part of young people’s identity and way of life.’
