Give Me That Online Religion by Brenda E. Brasher

The future of online religion is now! Give Me That Online Religion explores the ever-converging worlds of the Internet and traditional religion. Brenda Brasher, an expert in online religion, illustrates the general movement of spirituality and ritual into cyberspace (via personal home pages or official Web sites) that mirrors the shift of commerce and communications to a global scale. Far from undermining religion2s relevance, this trend has the potential of reinvigorating the practice and understanding of faith-sustaining and reshaping interest in the transcendent well into the future. Brings into focus what many of us suspect, but haven2t fully articulated-the computer is reshaping our spiritual sensitivities. Takes on the important question on how a new technology is forcing us to look again at old and enduring religious themes, and does so in an imaginative and provocative manner. -Wade Clark Roof, J.F. Rowny professor of religion and society, University of California at Santa Barbara One can find no better guide to cyberspace2s impact on the complex passions and strivings of premodern, modern, antimodern, and postmodern humanity that this brilliant, empathic, and unfailingly honest inquiry. Few writers on religion can combine critical acuity and great-hearted compassion the way Brenda Brasher does. -Richard Landes, director, Center for Millennial Studies at Boston University Dr. Brasher2s research and observations on the vitality of online religion are extremely valuable to anyone interested in the intersection of cyberspace and spirituality. -Lin Collette, independent scholar and contributing editor, Religion Watch One of our most adept guides to modern religion, Brasher provides the first serious look at how the Internet is transforming spirituality and gazes into the always-intriguing, sometimes-frightening future of global religion in the brave new era of cyberspace. -Gershom Gorenberg, senior editor, The Jerusalem Report, and author of The End of Days
