What is “The Social Christian” all about?

We live in a social media world and there is no turning back. It will keep on evolving and changing as technology advances more and more. Just when you think you’ve figured it out, a new app or social network comes out and you have to learn it all over again.

That is why Phil Schneider is back on the podcast. Phil is a Senior Staff Writer for ChurchMag and has a just written a new ebook entitled, “The Social Christian”.

In today’s episode, Phil and I talk about:

  • What Phil does with Church Mag
  • What is “The Social Christian” book all about and why did he write it
  • A breakdown of 3 different aspects of social media as mentioned in the book.
