The dangers of technology are lauded loudly by conservatives and older generations. Sometimes scientists chip in too, using a tiny piece of data or a skewed statistic to incite the whole population against something. This book is refreshing! It deals with the same issue, but rather than interpreting everything as a danger to be warned against, it explores it through the perspective of how we are changing as people. Everything from relationship, convenience, secrecy and gratification is addressed in light of the technology we hold in our hands. Dangers are exposed, sure, but not just that. How our lives and ministry can be improved is also addressed.
In this day of checklists, blog posts, and clickbait, I'm sure you've seen several short videos and the like about this issue. This book explores our hyper-connectedness but not with a sword of judgement, separating 'right and wrong'. Rather, the perspective is how we can identify and avoidmanage pitfalls, while also using technology to our advantage as believers. And I LOVE that it's a book where you have to sit down, disconnect and read.
