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.

 

1] Toward a Theology of Blogging

2] The Blog as a Non-Biblical Genre for a Biblical Practice

3] Bloggers as ‘Un-Ordained’ Voices…?
