More startling is the ease by which anyone with internet access can create new circles of faith. Electronic shrines and kitschy personal Web altars express adoration for living celebrities, just as they honor the memory of long-departed martyrs. In Give Me That Online Religion, online religion expert Brenda Brasher braves a new world in which cyber concepts and technologies challenge conventional ideas about the human condition--all the while attempting to realize age-old religious ideals of transcendence and eternal life.As the Internet continues its rapid absorption of culture, Give Me That Online Religion offers pause for thought about spirituality in the cyber-age. Religions move to the online world does not mean technologys triumph over faith. Rather, Brasher argues, it assures religions place in the wired universe, along with commerce and communications--meeting the spiritual demands of Internet generations to come.
