Engaging Violent Words: Prophetic Ministry in Digital Discourses
Zsupan-Jerome, Daniella
Religious Education, v112 n4 p431-443 2017
Faith-based engagement with digital culture calls communities of faith beyond an instrumental use of apps, gadgets, and platforms. Rather, engaging in digital culture calls for prophetic engagement that seeks to communicate truth and offer hope in and through digital communication. One salient area for such prophetic engagement is the reality of verbal violence online, especially as manifest in flaming comments in online public discourse. This article explores this prophetic approach and draws implications for Christian religious education.
