God, Technology & the Christian Life (Reinke)

SKU 9781433578274


What Does God Think about Technology?


Many Christians remain perplexed about modern technology. New iPhones and social media platforms, self-driving cars, and genetic engineering all prove that human innovation is not slowing down for anyone. But as technologies multiply and life in this age becomes more complex, the questions become more stark: What does God think of human technology? Is he threatened by all its power? Is he trying to dismantle Silicon Valley?


In his latest book, journalist Tony Reinke addresses these and other hard questions head-on from the Bible. By turning to 9 key passages and engaging with several theologians and thinkers, Reinke seeks to dismantle 12 common myths Christians often hold about technology, helping them understand the story of where human innovation came from and to embrace the church’s essential role in it.

  • “From John Calvin to Wendell Berry and Elon Musk. From world-changing fertilizer to medical innovations and space travel. From the Tower of Babel to the new Jerusalem. From technology as savior to the sovereignty of God. From the boasts of Silicon Valley to the blood of Jesus. Tony Reinke’s book God, Technology, and the Christian Life is panoramic and penetrating. I doubt there has ever been a more sweeping treatment of technology so firmly tethered to Scripture―and therefore so realistic and hopeful. Writing as a ‘tech optimist’ who trusts in God’s providential orchestration over all things, Reinke offers us an expansive and compelling ‘biblical theology of technology.’ God’s glory is the end of creation and the aim of all innovations. Apart from Christ there is no art, no science, no technology, no agriculture, no microprocessor, and no medical innovation. If God is the center of our life, technology is a great gift. If technology is our savior, we are lost. This is a mind-expanding, heart-stabilizing, God-glorifying, joy-sustaining book.”
    John Piper, Founder and Teacher,; Chancellor, Bethlehem College & Seminary; author, Desiring God
