We need more than status updates—we need relationships. Learning about God’s Heart from the TGIF (Twitter, Google, iPhone, Facebook) Generation The explosion in social networking is perhaps the most visible expression of the human longing to know others and to be known. Is there a parallel in contemporary Christianity? The church posts a welcome sign outside, but has Christianity lost sight of reaching the current generation with the heart of the gospel? Drawing from years of Leonard Sweet’s paradigm-shifting analyses, Real Church in a Social-Network World delivers ahead-of-the-curve observations and insights into the intersection of the gospel and richer relationships in an ever-changing culture of TGIFers (those who connect using Twitter, Google, the iPhone, and Facebook).

·   Find out how to recover the gospel’s unique emphasis on real relationship ·   Experience the promise and reward of relationship and reconciliation in everyday life ·   Learn how the driving desire for connection, understanding, and belonging give evidence of the deepest longings of the human soul This provocative eBook offers practical guidance to leaders and followers, believers and seekers, and anyone who is ready to explore the human longing for relationship.
