40 Days of Wikiklesia – Reviews, That Is

Wikiklesia-Book-1Anglican Vicar, Paul Walker is busy reviewing the eBook, Voices of the Virtual World – Volume One of the Wikiklesia Project. He’s promised to comment on a chapter a day (which means he’s about two weeks away from my chapter, The Generous Web.)

…it happens that this first venture covers a very similar area of study to my forthcoming MA dissertation – so I thought it would be helpful for me (and – hopefully – interesting to some readers here) to do a ‘chapter-by-chapter’ book blog, looking at each contribution in turn. [link]

Wired co-founder, Kevin Kelly had this to say about the book:

The hive-mind of Christianity speaks! It brings news of the future. Uttered like a prayer retrieved from the year 2030, spoken in a new tongue, a new form. Listen!

And IncarnationAl Hirsch* says this,

“The Wikiklesia Project has garnered some of the savviest writers and bloggers around in a daring attempt to radically democratize knowledge—and in the process unleash theological reflection where it matters most: in the public sphere. This is not just some new way to self publish; it is a new and exciting form of collaborative theologizing on critical topics that concern us all. Welcome to your future.”

The book will be available from Lulu in paperback in the next few weeks. Here’s a list of the book’s writers (linked to our sites),
