Bill Kinnon’s blog interests me in several realms he writes about, notably marketing, technology and the emerging church (aka faith & culture). I seem to follow blogs in each of the subsections of his blogroll, so I guess we’d see eye-to-eye on lots of things. Now, however, he’s written a book, A Networked Conspiracy. With this one, from all I can tell, it looks like he’s hitting close to my heart as well… talking about the Church, questionning its modern leadership structure, and quoting Cluetrain.
Bill posts about his new book, saying:
The book was partly written as the result of frustration with “modern” church leadership. We’ve become great at “delivering services” while ignoring the incredible potential that exists in the people to whom we “deliver those services.” In the Cluetrain universe we now inhabit, many, if not all people want to be involved. They want to both listen and be heard – they want to engage and be engaged. The one way communication of most “churchianity” just doesn’t cut it for them/us – and we not only want to be heard…we will be heard.
Looks to me like this book has got it all, and should sit well within the Church 2.0 discussion. Now I’ll have to get my hands on a copy…
