Flickering pixels are the tiny dots of light that make up the screens of life—from TVs to cell phones. They are nearly invisible, but they change us. In this provocative book, author Shane Hipps takes readers beneath the surface of things to see how the technologies we use end up using us. Not all is dire, however, as Hipps shows us that hidden things have far less power to shape us when they aren’t hidden anymore. We are only puppets of our technology if we remain asleep. Flickering Pixels will wake us up—and nothing will look the same again. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 2/3/2014

    " Loved it. Opened my eyes to what technology is in my life and helped me redefine what I use it for! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Faith | 1/20/2014

    " Takes a good honest look at how media actually shapes the way we think, which in turn effects how we behave. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samuel | 1/13/2014

    " Interesting book. Discussing current technological trends and how the medium effects the message. Would have liked more practical suggestions on how to combat that, but at the very least it will cause you to evaluate how and who you are presenting the Gospel to and how they may and could be receiving it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 1/12/2014

    " It makes me want to think a lot more carefully about how I use technology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stan Leland | 12/28/2013

    " Another very thought provoking book that allows us to see what's hidden in plain sight in our culture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Kinsfather | 12/26/2013

    " Similar to Postman and McLughhan. A commentary on technology and culture. Hipps adds thoughts on religion to the discussion. He strays from this topic near the end. Easy to read on an interesting topic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 11/28/2013

    " I thought this book was fantastic and revealing about how much media really does affect the message, and the transformation of our culture as it adapts to new and different media. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 10/7/2013

    " Truly fascinating stuff. And laced with humor. Makes me really aware of the impact technology has on me and the way I think. We'll see where he goes with it.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 5/27/2013

    " Very good reflections on both the way that technology effects interpersonal relationship and faith, but also, influenced by Marshall McLurhan, how the chruch is both Gods medium and message to the world. Short chapters make good reading at bed time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh Burns | 8/2/2012

    " A great book on the evolution of technology, and how it shapes our faith. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 5/7/2011

    " An interesting sociology of digital communication. Think 'Marshall McLuhan for those following Jesus in the early 21st century'. His writing stretched my thinking although I did not come up with identical conclusions in every case. Well crafted. "

    " I love the "Fact-faith-feeling" train. Runs without the caboose and it's ridiculous to try to pull the train with the caboose. "

    " I love this book. No matter what you believe, it at least makes you think about how media shapes our beliefs and faith.

    Fantastic. "
