A millennial through and through, Nathan Roberts s book recounts his adventures in the new media jungle, blending personal experience with media theory, philosophy, literature, and theology to meditate on the question: How do we, and how should we, behave and believe in a media-saturated world?


Nathan s adventures span the American landscape. In a journey that moves from suburban California, to rural Texas, to downtown Manhattan and back again, his story explores the often maddening, sometimes heart-wrenching, power of today s media to create simultaneous presence and absence, as it reproduces (increasingly) powerful art and the uncanny echoes of other lives.


With humor and insight, Roberts s story calls us to conceive of media not only as a tangled postmodern phenomenon, a media jungle of befuddling proportions, but as a digital architecture that creates real meeting space where we can become ourselves, commune with others, and meet the God who created a world immediate, sensual, and oblique all at once, a world of surfaces illuminated by his presence.
