Summary
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, as well as findings from surveys of young adults and their views on spirituality, religion, and modern cultural values. It examines church models that seemed destined for success, yet failed, while also considering ministries that some may not consider legitimate church structures, yet they are reaching people and changing lives forever. Far from tolling the death knell forthe established church, MySpace to Sacred Space is an affirming, hopefull look at the ever-growing need for what the Chrsitian 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
