Do You Control Your Phone-Or Does Your Phone Control You?

Within a few years of its unveiling, the smartphone had become part of us, fully integrated into the daily patterns of our lives. Never offline, always within reach, we now wield in our hands a magic wand of technological power we have only begun to grasp. But it raises new enigmas, too. Never more connected, we seem to be growing more distant. Never more efficient, we have never been more distracted.

Drawing from the insights of numerous thinkers, published studies, and his own research, writer Tony Reinke identifies twelve potent ways our smartphones have changed us-for good and bad. Reinke calls us to cultivate wise thinking and healthy habits in the digital age, encouraging us to maximize the many blessings, avoid the various pitfalls, and wisely wield the most powerful gadget of human connection ever unleashed.

Poignant and Timely
4 stars By Raj, Jun 08 2017
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.

Thoughtful and thorough
5 stars By Raj, May 25 2017
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.
