Publisher's Description

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.
