Grace & Gigabytes:
Being Church in a Tech-Shaped Culture
Now available wherever books are sold!
"It's hard to imagine a more pertinent book for the church of 2020 and beyond. Ryan Panzer takes the best of tech culture and brings it to bear on a church desperate to engage the digital world. He does so without losing the richness of Christian theology or the dynamism of the Christian community. This book is a must-read for anyone longing to move their church beyond awkward live-streaming and Zoom meetings to a church that is as adept online as it is in the sanctuary."
- The Rev. Angela Denker, author of the best-selling "Red State Christians: Understanding the Voters who elected Donald Trump"
"In a time of pandemic where physical distancing has pushed us all into digital spaces, Ryan Panzer reminds us that a tech-shaped culture is one that demands good questions, clear relational connections, agile collaboration, and genuine creativity. His experience working at both Google and in Lutheran churches gives him the authority and authenticity to be an excellent guide in these challenging times. Our faith and our deepest questions are inextricably bound together, and this book will help you to see that entanglement as a gift, not an obstacle."
-Mary E. Hess, Professor of Educational Leadership, Luther Seminary
