NetCasters: Using the Internet to Make Fishers of Men is a new book by author and speaker Craig von Buseck. Available from Broadman and Holman Publishers, von Buseck, director of CBN.com for the Christian Broadcasting Network, discerningly profiles those who are doing the best job of spreading biblical Christianity online. He encourages the church at large to follow their lead and fish for souls in these same rich waters—from blogs and chat rooms to Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, and beyond.
"Like the industrial age before it, the information age has changed our lives in monumental new ways, including how a lot of us are learning about spirituality. Research suggests fifty million people will rely solely on the Internet—indeed the new Roman Road—for their faith-based experiences in 2010," says von Buseck.
