"You are about to experience the Internet in a way that is both very new and very old, as a modern-day sacred text, a source of spiritual inspiration and fulfillment. As the world of cyberspace has increasingly become part of our daily lives, it has become, for many, a public library and shopping mall, a post office and entertainment center. In this book, the Internet is seen as a catalyst for worship and introspection. This is not to say that one should bow down to the computer on your desk as some metallic Baal or Zeus. This is merely to suggest that the Internet can help us experience and approach God."

While many other devotees of the interface between spirituality and computer technology have talked in abstractions, Joshua Hammerman, a rabbi, brings it all down to earth with his descriptions of the virtual pilgrimages he takes to Jerusalem, Mecca, Chartres, and Kosovo. The Internet has exposed his heart and mind to the riches of spiritual openness, hospitality, attention, and compassion. The author even reflects upon a visit to a "Hate" group website.

Hammerman also demonstrates how seeking God on the Internet can be a playful experience that both edifies and entertains. Equally interesting are the author's musings on God as a work-in-progress and his explanation of communicating with congregants by email. Hammerman concludes: "We find God on the Internet because it binds us all as one."
