How often have you talked about “reaching people where they are”—and realized that much of the time, they are on the Internet?
We’ve been living in a digital world for quite a while now. Justin Wise speaks about social media as this generation's printing press—a revolutionary technology that can spread the gospel farther and faster than we can imagine.
It’s time to take what we know (and admit what we don’t know) and learn together how to move forward as the church. Are you ready to think theologically about this digital age and reach people in a new way?

Along with stories of Bear and of other animals, Anderson shares his love of the Suwanee River, and how watching the cool waters gentle flow can help ease obligations. He also tells the story of his wifes battle with cancer. His recollections range from funny and joyful to poignant, touching so many aspects of Gods creation.
The stories in this collection make connections between Bear and his position with God to encourage you in your faith. God has an eternal love for His people, and He uses all His creatures and creation to convey that love to us. In a Man, His Dog, and God, Anderson felt the Lords call saying: I want you to tell a story using Bear and his experiences to tell my children how much I love them.
