In what may well be an unlikely turn of events in my fledgling writing career, I have been directing considerable energy toward media issues. “Unlikely,” because I am not very tech-savvy. “Unlikely,” because I have often been a bit of a curmudgeon when it comes to social media. And I should admit that I don’t have a Kindle or an iPad or even an iPhone. My only access to an i-anything is my wife’s iPod, which I am not quite sure how to work.
But I am intrigued conceptually by media.
My current book project is tentatively called ‘TheoMedia’ (with Cascade Books). The draft is due in September (yikes). Meanwhile, I have begun writing as the theological editor for a site here in the UK called BigBible. Their emphasis is on Biblical Literacy in a Media Age.
For BigBible, I have a series underway called “Blogology” that is devoted to thinking theologically about blog-writing and blog-reading. Here are the first three posts if you would like to check them out.
