Craig Detweiler: Selfies and Searching for God in the Digital Age

Today Warren Cole Smith interviews Craig Detweiler about his book, “Selfies: Searching for the Image of God in a Digital Age.” They discuss the idea of self-image in history, from ancient myths to Renaissance portraiture, to the ubiquitous selfie of today.

Within moments, as Detweiler explains, smart phone users can capture their image and post it across multiple social media platforms to a global audience. But do we truly understand the power of image in our image-saturated age? How can we seek God and care for each other in digital spaces?
