Review of ‘Ministry in the Digital Age’ by David T. Bourgeois

Ministry-in-Digital-Age-cover David T. Bourgeois, Ministry in the Digital Age: Strategies and Best Practices for a Post-Website World (Downers Grove, IL: IVP Books, 2013). $15.00, 144 pages.

The purpose of Ministry in the Digital Age is “to provide churches and ministries with the guidance they need to successfully embrace and use digital technologies as means to fulfill their mission” (8). The book identifies three elements of a “digital ministry framework”: technology, people, and process (chapter 4). Too often, churches and ministries make decisions about what digital platforms to use before they take into account who will use them or how their digital ministry will be developed, implemented, and sustained. Chapters 5 and 6 outline a 13-step process for addressing precisely those issues. Because it is short and practical, Ministry in the Digital Age will help your church or ministry quickly begin to match digital means to spiritual ends.
