I’ve been waiting for the release of this book, and today is the big day. I received an early copy from the publisher, and I can confidently say that it’s worth a good read. As a blogger, I see the great potential technology has to spread the good news of Jesus Christ; however, I also understand that there are dangers and idols closely associated with the digital world. In this book, Tim Challies tackles these both, providing a “technology theology” of sorts, exercising careful, biblical discernment on the issues throughout. I heartily recommend it.

This conference celebrates its heritage and considers “what it means to carry on the legacy of accurate English translations for the 21st century.”
