Although Christ’s incarnation affirms bodily life and face-to-face communication, it also compels the church to enter the incorporeal realm of cyberspace and to interact in digital environments.
Andrew Byers is a PhD candidate at Durham University where he serves as the chaplain at St. Mary’s College and as a theological consultant for CODEC, a research institute focusing on Christian communication in the digital age. His first book is Faith Without Illusions: Following Jesus as a Cynic-Saint (2011). Byers blogs at www.hopefulrealism.com.
