iGods
by Craig Detweiler
(BrazosPress)

Today, the world is literally at our fingertips. We can call, text, email, or post our status to friends and family on the go. We can carry countless games, music and apps in our pockets. Yet, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by access to so much information and exhausted from managing our online relationships.

Craig Detweiler, a nationally known writer and speaker, explores the relationship between technology and theology, providing a Christian perspective on today’s social media culture. He interacts with major symbols, or “iGods,” of our distracted age — Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, YouTube, Twitter and others — and investigates the impact of these cultural phenomena that drive us. Detweiler offers a historic look at where we’ve been and a prophetic look at where we’re headed, helping us sort out the immediate from the eternal, the digital from the divine.
