Description

The world has changed. And we feel it in our homes, schools, and congregations.

We can hardly remember a time when we didn't feel the influence of that back pocket device. The average social media user spends about two-and-a-half hours a day using social media. That's more than enough time to shape our values and desires. Pastors, teachers, and parents feel their influence slipping away. We're seeing increased loneliness, disunity, and self-absorption. But where do we go from here?

In The Wolf in Their Pockets, Internet expert Chris Martin examines the many ways we are being changed by social media. With a biblically informed voice, Martin both exposes the ways the Internet is distorting our life in Christ and shows us how to faithfully respond. Martin teaches us how to care for people who are obsessed with followers, views, and likes--and how to love those whose online influences have filled them with cynicism and contempt. Martin looks at how the social Internet is changing how we understand sex and beauty--what to do about the epidemic levels of anxiety--and how to redirect our hearts to worship Jesus Christ.

Shepherding and leading people has never been easy, but the social Internet has brought new challenges. We need the miraculous work of the Holy Spirit and a powerful prayer life. Martin provides the biblical wisdom, direction, and hope necessary to combat The Wolf in Their Pockets.
