New book: Will You Be My Facebook Friend?

I have a new book out looking at the gospel and social media entitled Will You Be My Facebook Friend? It’s a short book that expands material which previously appeared on this blog.

Will You Be My Facebook Friend? is available here from and

Here’s what some kind people have said about it …

It’s striking, given the amount of time that many of us spend communicating with others online, how few of us have stopped to reflect on why we do so? This great little book will help you do just that, exposing wrong motives and showing us how faith in Christ challenges and changes the way we engage with others online. (Tim Dennis, UCCF Midlands Team Leader)

Get off–line, turn off Spotify and read this book! You’ll get through it in less time than many of us spend on Facebook each day, but this book will do you lasting good. Tim Chester writes honestly and urgently about both the potential and pitfalls of social media, calling us back to the 3D relationships we were created for. Like. (Dave Gobbett, Associate Pastor, Eden Baptist)

This book is concise, insightful, challenging and compelling. If social media is something that you, or those around you, are engaged with, you’d do well to un–plug for a while and plug–in to what Tim has to say on the matter. Uncomfortable truths are presented alongside wise, gracious advice. Above all we are repeatedly pointed to Jesus and encouraged to live real lives, rooted in genuine community and marked by the gospel. (Dai Hankey, Church planter and author)

Tim Chester is always insightful, and this little book is no exception. Wise, gracious, challenging and thoughtful, it will benefit anyone who uses social media. First class. (Andrew Wilson, Teaching Pastor, King s Church, Eastbourne)
