Today some two billion people around the world use the Internet. Almost 80% of North Americans are connected to the web. But even as we use it, few of us understand the dizzying array of its applications and implications. David Clark guides us through the complexities of the Internet with simple, clear explanations. Even better, he unveils the spiritual implications of the Internet, both positive and negative. Pastors, parents, and teachers will greatly appreciate this book, as will the everyday Christian who, like me, is struggling to keep up with the ever-expanding universe of cyber-space, desiring to use it to God's glory and the welfare of our families and Christ's church. --Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
It is true that the Internet has brought all the world into our homes. This includes good and evil, beauty and ugliness, truth and falsehood. How are Christian parents to deal with this onslaught on our homes and our children? David Clark has provided a much-needed service to the church by writing a book on this very issue. He takes a very balanced approach, and one that is needed in the church. I can t think of a more pressing issue for the church to deal with. I encourage every parent to buy this book and to work through it diligently. Do not be caught unawares! --John D. Currid, Carl McMurray Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary-Charlotte
Much has been written about living as Christians in this digital world; much more will be written in the days and years to come. The unique strength of David Clark's contribution is in his application of key biblical principles that will guide our use of these technologies and inform our dedication to them. --Tim Challies, Author and Blogger, Ontario, Canada
