Selfies: Searching for the Image of God in a Digital Age. Craig Detweiler

4 of 5 stars

Before Selfies, we hadn't much pondered the selfie. What we know is that we no longer have to pay for image prints, disposable cameras or flash bulbs to take photographs. We shoot with digital and excepting equipment, the costs are entirely less-then they otherwise would have been.

Nowadays, most everyone has a constantly perched hand phone. It emits song files, reading files and snaps quick pics and why not? It's right there!

SelfiesWhat prompted the author to write this book were instances of selfies gone bad. Detweiler viewed "inappropriate selfies." Oh man, we wished we hadn't gone and looked. Taste less?

For us, we do not believe that selfies are the problem, as there are so many ways to display bad taste and disrespect. Selfies are a vehicle. View with caution.
