Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

The First Review

The first official review of The Blogging Church is out! Ministry Today Magazine has posted its review online. Here's an excerpt:

In our world of computerized communications, weblogs, or blogs, are part of a new revolution. The Blogging Church, by Brian Bailey with Terry Storch, proves a compelling case for capitalizing on that trend and provides clear instructions for venturing into the blogosphere. The authors thoroughly explain blogs, not only discussing costs and related factors, but also revealing how typical congregations with very little tech know-how can get started.

Ideal Reader: Church leaders and followers of Christ who hope to find simple, practical and successful ways to use blogging for promoting a local church and reaching the lost.

Rate the book from 1 (poor) to 5 (excellent) on these criteria: Practicality (5); Insight (5); Theological Depth (3); Readability (5)

I call it the first "official" review because up until this point, all of the feedback on the book has been from friends, relatives, or people who are actually featured in the book - in other words, not exactly an impartial jury. Thanks to Matt Green for his kind words!
