Even the least technical among us are being pressed from all sides by advances in digital technology. We rely upon computers, cell phones, and the Internet for communication, commerce, and entertainment. Yet even though we live in this “instant message” culture, many of us feel disconnected, and we question if all this technology is really good for our souls. In a manner that’s accessible, thoughtful, and biblical, author Tim Challies addresses questions such as: 

– How has life—and faith—changed now that everyone is available all the time through mobile phones? 
– How does our constant connection to these digital devices affect our families and our church communities?
– What does it mean that almost two billion humans are connected by the Internet … with hundreds of millions more coming online each year? 

Providing the reader with a framework they can apply to any technology, Tim Challies explains how and why our society has become reliant on digital technology, what it means for our lives, and how it impacts the Christian faith.

    " I really enjoyed this book. The book had good insight, rrsearch, and references, all while being written in an easy to read style. It gave me plenty to think about. While I read this book for research of my own, I'm glad I did. "

    " Really really good book. I doubt many of my contemporaries will take the time to read it, but if you do you're sure to come away grappling with what it says. "

    " Tim Challies has written an excellent commentary on the intersection of technology and faith. He breaks down the philosophical trends that underlie much of the technology and the push behind our technological age. He then helpfully considers these philosophies in light of the heart of man and the light of God's word. There is much here built upon Postman and other prophetic voices - but that is to his advantage as he uses valuable insight to weave a fresh and much needed perspective into this issue. "
