Review: Daniel Darling’s A Way with Words: Using Our Online Conversations for Good

"...A Way with Words is a much-needed book. It’s no doubt easy enough to think of all the other people who need to read it, but some self-reflection should show that all of us will benefit from considering the ways we speak and, particularly, the ways we communicate online." - Challies

“Social media is a double-edged sword. It tries to fill two voids in our culture and ultimately fails on both counts.”

"It is not that all individuals are level-headed, or reflective, or kind, or merciful. It is that level-headedness, or introspection, or kindness, or mercy are only possible for individuals. Crowds can be joyful or they can be murderous; they can celebrate or they can protest; but what is beyond their reach is sobriety – and it is sobriety that ultimately separates civilization from barbarism." - Acton

So why have they turned their backs on law and order and embraced the mob? What has changed since the 1960s that makes it so much harder for leaders in government, business and culture to condemn violence and lawlessness?” - RealClearPolitics

Is Social Media the New Responsible Realm for Influencers or the Battleground for Fools?

"What we often end up doing is speaking before listening, and driving wedges between people who should live in love and unity. I read one writer recently on Facebook who said that spiritual leaders have a responsibility to use social media as a channel for influence, but there are some major obstacles .... I am just going to be transparent here about my own problems and concerns about posting on social media." - P&D

Conspiracy Theories, Engaging Online, and Wisdom: The Intersection of the Three and How to Respond Biblically

"Given the enduring importance of conspiracy theories, I want to circle back to some of the criticism of the DNS article before focusing on few preliminary suggestions on how Christians can begin to think through healthy online habits." - Andrew MacDonald
