Christian Nonfiction. Religion & Spirituality. Sociology. Nonfiction. When the smartphone was introduced, many of us quickly adopted it into our lives-too quickly to stop and think about the future costs we were unboxing along with the device. Now blessed with this revolutionary piece of handheld technology, we try to wield it with wisdom, fending off anxieties about how our digital habits impact our spiritual health.

An important book but highlights in introduction & early chapters are the best part of the book. The rest is repetitious & didactic ( )

Interesting look into how smart phones have pervaded our lives, in some ways without us even being aware of how much autonomy we've given to the technology in our lives.

The author recognizes the push/pull of technology. What I took away is to be aware of how I'm spending my days and whether I'm genuinely connecting with the people in my life. ( )

Such a great book. I’m well written and convicting but in the best of ways. I wasn’t Kaiden with guilt rather I was moved to engage with my phone in healthy God honoring ways. Highly recommended. ( )

Every Christian who is on the internet (and you are if you’re reading this) must read this book.
This is great biblical thinking on how smart phones and internet effect us, but also how we should be using them for the glory of God. Check it out. ( )
