Technology and our Souls


Just the other day, I overheard a conversation in which Sally Michael was highly recommending Tim Challies book: The Next Story: Faith, Friends, Family, and the Digital World. Here is a description of the book as it was posted on Amazon:

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.

Sounds like a good read for all of us—especially parents, teachers, and ministry leaders as we navigate the use of technology in our homes and classrooms.
