B&H acquires speaker, columnist, podcast host Daniel Darling for book on communication in the social media age
[NASHVILLE, TENN., July 15, 2019 —] B&H Publishing is proud to announce its acquisition of prolific speaker, columnist, podcast host and author Daniel Darling for a book outlining a biblical vision for communication in the social media age.
Darling’s forthcoming book, tentatively set for publication in August 2020, will focus on how Christians can better interact online with kindness, civility and love, and use online conversation for good. Darling, who works as the Vice President for Communications for the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention (ERLC), has written eight books, including “The Dignity Revolution” (August 2018, The Good Book Company) published most recently.
“I’m glad to bring my next book to B&H Publishing. I’ve long admired the commitment B&H has to publish well-written, trustworthy books by leading voices, all designed to equip the worldwide body of Christ,” Darling said. “I look forward to working with their first-class editors and marketing team on this book. Christians today are looking for a biblical approach to communicating online in a digital age, and I hope that this book will help followers of Jesus both apply the gospel to our digital discourse in a way that resists the temptations toward tribal outrage and use these platforms to communicate truth, beauty and goodness.”
“Publishers Weekly” called Darling’s writing style “substantive and punchy,” and his articles have appeared in leading national publications such as “USA Today,” CNN, “Washington Times,” “TIME Magazine,” Huffington Post, “National Review,” “Washington Post,” “Christianity Today” and many others. He is regularly interviewed as an expert commentator on television and radio, has appeared as a commentator on CNN and on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and is the host of a weekly podcast, “The Way Home with Dan Darling.”
Darling’s contract was negotiated by his literary agent, Erik Wolgemuth of Wolgemuth & Associates, with worldwide rights.
“It’s no surprise that our society is divided; our online conversation is both evidence of that division and one of the reasons for it. Unfortunately, Christians haven’t been innocent in this regard, and we’re often tempted to speak unhelpfully online or to abandon the platform altogether,” said Taylor Combs, Associate Publisher of Christian Living and Leadership. “B&H is excited to partner with Dan as he points readers to a third way of using social media and speaking online for good.”
