Item Description...
Overview
Recently, MySpace.com has become one of the most-visited Web sites in the world. With millions of young users, this one site has made a giant impact on youth pop culture in just a matter of a few years. At the same time, themes of spirituality pervade our lives. From television to film and popular literature, theology is a burgeoning enterprise in popular culture. In contrast, most churches and denominations are built on eighteenth-century principles, and are fighting to remain relevant to young members. The collective fear is that if the church doesn't adapt to this new generation, they will be left behind forever. Christian and Amy Piatt believe church leaders have a responsibility to stay tuned in to the values and vernacular employed by the younger generations. MySpace to Sacred Space combines first-hand accounts with case studies from people both within and outside the church. Far from tolling the death knell for the established church, MySpace to Sacred Space is an affirming, hopeful look at the ever-growing need for what the Christian faith can offer the world. Much of the relevance for the twenty-first century church can be found in our oldest traditions. By reconnecting with our past and by setting time aside for God and for one another, we have an opportunity to create sacred space and time wherever we are.

Truths about young adults  May 1, 2008
This book gives great insight to being a young adult Christian in a consumerist society. Anyone working with young adults would find this a valuable resource.
 
My Space to Sacred Space   Aug 14, 2007
My wife and I have just finished reading Christian and Amy Piatt's book MySpace to Sacred Space. While both of us have read more books on church growth than we can remember (my wife is a pastor), we have rarely come away from any of them as charged and excited about the possibilities for church in the 21st century as we did with this one. Far from being yet another program for growth, MySpace to Sacred Space focuses on the much more ancient and important task of building community. Christian and Amy weave personal stories, experiences, and insights together to illustrate the power of story and community in the life of the church. Whether my wife and I find ourselves planting new churches or helping older congregations revitalize, I am confident that the ideas of MySpace to Sacred Space will be with us for a long time.
