"The two most engaging powers of an author are to make new things familiar and familiar things new" - Samuel Johnson

NETCASTERS BOOK AVAILABLE TILL END OF MAY

Grateful thanks to all who blogged, Facebooked or Tweeted about IE Day.

Digital Evangelism Month is still with us though - all the month of May. Please make it known any way you can.

The free book offer remains open all month too - it's not too late to grab some real gems.

Craig von Buseck's book 'NetCasters: Using the Internet to Make Fishers of Men', which was scheduled as a download on Internet Evangelism Day only, had to be postponed due to technical problems. It is now available as a PDF BUT ONLY FOR A FEW MORE DAYS. Grab it now:
http://IEDay.net/eb

Other books, available till end of the month, include...
Doug Pollock's book 'God Space: where spiritual conversations happen naturally' is available till the end of the month

Dick Innes' 'I Hate Witnessing' is really an explanation of opening minds with appropriate communication.

'Coffee Shop Evangelism' will shortly be available as a free Kindle book

... plus a range of key evangelism and communication titles, study resources and more:

2D OR 3D - It's a funny world. But if you can only find a movie available in 3D, and 3D gives you headaches (or you hate things jumping out from the screen), you can buy 2D glasses - ie. polarized so that both eyes see exactly the same 2D picture!

STORY-TELLING

"And they lived happily ever after," Extravagant Grace blog writes. "These may be the most beautiful and haunting words in the entire library of mankind. Why does the end of a great story leave us with a lump in our throats and an ache in our hearts? If we haven't become entirely cynical, some of the best endings can even bring us to tears.
Because God has set eternity in our hearts. ..."

Story4All encourages the use of storytelling in evangelism:

MOBILE PHONES

The difference between smartphones and previous web-equipped phones is as dramatic as the jump from the old DOS operating system which some may remember and mouse-driven Windows screens. Yet even on Smartphones, actual use of web pages can be problematic. It is becoming critical to optimize your website for mobile users:
