Social media provide an opportunity for congregations to open the doors and windows to their congregational life before people ever step inside. It’s no longer all about “getting your message out” as if people are passively waiting for the latest news from the parish, diocese, or national church. Rather, it’s about creating spaces where meaningful relationships can develop. Click 2 Save: The Digital Ministry Bible is a practical resource guide for religious leaders who want to enrich and extend their ministries using digital media like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and church or personal blogs. An ideal companion to Tweet If You ? Jesus: Practicing Church in the Digital Reformation (Morehouse, 2011), Click 2 Save draws on extensive research and practical experience in church and other ministry settings to provide functional, how-to guidance on effectively using social networking sites in the day-to-day context of ministry.

My eyes were opened about the varied manners in which we can 'plug in' with persons who are seeking or who are part of the community of faith and wish to know more and be more involved. My only issue was that it seems to me the authors believe that leaders have a relatively sophisticated skill set re: computers, which I definitely do NOT have.
  • Felhalar
A great, really hands-on resource for anyone interested in taking their ministry online. The emphasis is on being personal and authentic and building relationships. The case studies really make the book practical and user-friendly.

Excellent text for solid theological basis and 21st century communication tool for the church. Served as an excellent text to add to my course at United Theological Seminary and Web Ministry.
  • Ironfire
Useable information.
  • JUST DO IT
This is a text for an online course I am taking, it helped with unravelling the code of the techno world.
  • Jugore
I was expecting something a bit more for regular folks. It got great reviews from people who are already deeply into technology.
Not what I was expecting.

Keith Anderson and Elizabeth Drescher go to great lengths to get the point across that digital ministry is about developing meaningful relationships rather than trying to market your church to the local community. I didn't find the book to be too technical. I'm no techy guru but I do have a blog, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. I thought it leaned more toward simplicity and clarity than assuming the reader had an extensive background in computers. If you haven't been on Facebook or Twitter to know how to use them, then you have to go through that learning curve, too. This book helps you learn how to use the different social media platforms for ministry more effectively. It can't do the work for you. I found it helpful to be near my computer when reading so I could implement any suggestions appropriate for me. This is a great book for those who have been wondering how to take the first steps to expand their ministry outside the walls of the church and to make the church relevant to those younger than forty.
Because of the specificity with which it discusses various platforms, this text was dated the day it was published. Some explanation of how platforms can be used in ministry settings could be helpful, but because of all the other dated and unhelpful information, the book is only marginally useful. As a former-church communications staff person I am not the target audience for this book, but it is also not a book I would recommend to someone trying to acclimate herself to the world of social media in the context of ministry.

Also, this text includes numerous, blurry screenshots of Facebook profiles and the like as part of its instruction on how to use various platforms. Because of these low-quality images and mix of aesthetically unappealing fonts, it was initially difficult for me to take the authors' arguments as credible. Having read the text, I do believe the instruction is largely sound, but poor layout choices really are distracting and discrediting.
