The Book @stickyJesus – review by Sandra HeskaKing

A while ago, Sandra HeskaKing wrote a review of the book ‘@stickyJesus: how to live out your faith online‘ by @tamiheim and @tonybirdsong.

Sandra is recommending it as a Book to Buy for Christmas, and she agreed to allow me to post part of the review here, so you can find out what it’s all about (and then go buy it).

The full review can be found on sandraheskaking.com

I had never heard the word “sticky” used in a context other than those such as dried orange juice on my kitchen floor or hair matted with gum.

And now Tami and Toni present a field guide for Christ followers, for those of us who want to be online Light shedders and dark shredders using social media to share our stories and offer hope to those who hurt. For those of us who seek and share. For those of us who long to share the stickiest of messages.

This book drips Jesus and challenges us to stick to Him as we build and interact with our online community. Tami and Toni call their chapters “files” and summarize each in a “download” and end with an “upload” prayer. They include stories of real people making a difference online for real people. They provide hints and helps for dummies and geeks in an easy-to-read, hard-to-put-down format.

“This book is for every Christ follower residing on this side of heaven. It’s for those who realize–and those who have yet to understand–the awesome moment into which we’ve been born. It’s for technology novices, casual surfers, and those already folded comfortably into the online world. Wherever you are in your skill level, it’s time to direct your heart toward the sticky things of God.” ~@sticky Jesus

The ends of the earth sit at our fingertips. And we are here for such a time as this.

Do you want to make a difference for Jesus as a “digital scribe?”

Get. This. Book.

And check out the @stickyJesus website.

About PeterP

I am a blogger, author, stay at home dad, speaker, web hosting trainer and geek (I was so excited to get an iPad that I actually made up a song and dance about it). I am English by birth, but currently live in California with my wife and our three children. I ran a web hosting business for nine years and found that many, if not most of my clients had never learned how to use any of the functions associated with hosting so I wrote a book to try and teach just those skills. I must admit to having fallen in love with WordPress (possibly a little TOO much) and I honestly find it hard to understand why anyone would use anything different to build a site! WordPress is wonderful! My passion is to help others achieve their goals with their websites/blogs. I believe that, with a little help, anyone can have an awesome site.

  1. Thanks so much for including this, Peter. It’s such an important book for such an important time. I’m still trying to get my head around the ripple effect of one post or one tweet.

    For those who might be interested, Michelle Sarabia has scheduled a blog read-along of this book starting December 9.
