Acknowledging that technology is everywhere, an inescapable aspect of our lives, author and blogger Tim Challies provides guidance and direction for readers who struggle with the changes brought about by the digital revolution. He helps readers understand why digital technology exists and how a Christian can use new technologies with biblical discernment. 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 readers 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. - Publisher.… (mais)

Thought-provoking discussion of how the digital revolution has impacted our thinking, our culture, and our spiritual lives. Tim Challies has put together a very helpful discussion, being both even-handed and Biblical. These are not the rantings of a technology-hating rambler. Tim is thoughtful in both the areas of theology and technology. As a technology leader at a Christian ministry, this book gives me much more to think about.
If you are a gadget-loving Christian, you should read this book. ( )

From a recent review "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." This has been a very helpful book that has given me insight into the impact that technology has on my life each and every day. Well worth the read. ( )

The book is framed as a pragmatic discussion promising the reader suggestions on more faith-filled and deliberate way of living in the digital world, but the reason I recommend it is that the reader gets more than that. In his discussions about distractions, mediated reality, and wikis Challies gives great teachings on the purpose of the Christian life, the personal nature of Christ and his community, and the nature of Truth. Essentially, because of the book’s context, i.e., living in a digital world, he’s able to explain spiritual truths in a way that probably much easier for non-philosophers to grasp their significance. Doctrinally, it’s solid and appropriate for Western Christians from any tradition. ( )

Good book. Lots of good points - the digital world is eating away at community and how virtual community fails to replace it with the same quality of relationships, How in this easily distractable digital world we have so much information that we are failing to turn it into knowledge and then wisdom. I just wish he could have written more about a reasonable response to these real problems. Hopefully that is another book. ( )

Very helpful overview of the various aspects Christians must consider when evaluating the role of digital media in their lives. ( )
