Selfies Book review

9781587433986

Selfies by Craig Detweiler is a look at how God is portrayed through the age of social media.

Pretty much everyone has a smartphone. All of those people all over the world take numerous pictures of themselves, or “Selfies” as they are called. Pictures are posted on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and pretty much everywhere else that a picture can be posted online.

Throughout this book, Craig takes a serious look at how this phenomenon changes the way people look at God. Does God perhaps get shoved to the back burner because we are so occupied with taking pictures of ourselves, or even looking at photographs that our friends or other people have posted online?

This book also looks at how we can move from a place that is so focused on ourselves to a place that God wants us to be in so that we can grow in Him and what is wanted for our lives instead of always focusing on what pop culture and the world gravitates towards. this generation needs to push past the boundaries that culture has placed on them, and they, along with all of us, need to be the people that God has called us to be. We need to represent Christ and be Jesus to the people that we all meet on the streets, instead of them seeing us always on our cell phones.

We need to get back to the real world.
