How can Catholics best connect with God and get answers to difficult questions about their faith? And is it possible to do so in social media culture that limits answers to 140-character tweets?
"If we intend to bring Jesus' message to the people of today, we'll have to be active online. Jesus starts where people are to be found."
"Evolution and creation are not mutually exclusive. Evolution is evident in nature, but we, with our souls, have been created by God."
"Fully accept Jesus' forgiveness. He knows everything: when he forgives, you truly are forgiven. Now forgive yourself & others."
"Jesus wants one Church, but our sinfulness causes divisions. We must pray and work for unity, but only God can give it."
"Fr. Remery proves that employing the platform of Twitter to learn about, enthusiastically share, and fall in love with our Catholic faith can indeed have great impact on both the sender and the recipient." –Lisa Hendey, Founder, CatholicMom.com
Do you have questions about the faith? Fortunately, there are answers to be found!
Poised to become an international bestseller, Tweeting with God is a slicked up hot rod of an evangelization tool–answering every question that a young person could muster, in a straightforward format that won’t cause a teen’s eyes to glaze over.
Tweeting With God is one of those books you need to have “out and about” in your household, and not kept just shoved in a bookcase. It is a conversation generator between generations; it is catechesis rendered almost painfree.
Father Michel Remery is certainly at the forefront of promoting the faith using social media, and is to be commended for his solid work, compiled in the many essays which cover wide swaths of the catechism in Tweeting with God.
Tweeting with God is a very welcome tool covering topics of concern to young adults today, including reproductive technology, genetically modified crops, and how to use social media in the right way.
The treatment of the central mysteries of the Church is sound and orthodox, and it puts to rest a great many misconceptions about the devotional and eschatological teachings of the Church. The questions dealing with prayer are especially helpful, and the last two appendices provide great starting plans for those who are learning how to pray.
