Synopsis: A nationally known writer and speaker on media issues provides a needed Christian perspective on the technologies and cultural phenomena that drive us.

From the Back Cover: How Technology Shapes Our Spiritual and Social Lives

Craig Detweiler interacts with major symbols, or "iGods," of our distracted age to investigate the impact of the technologies and cultural phenomena that drive us.

"This is a wonderfully engaging romp through the largely American hills and valleys where theology and technology meet--a splendid contribution to the emerging conversations about what constitutes the good life in this age of information and communication technologies."
--Quentin Schultze, Calvin College; author of Habits of the High-Tech Heart: Living Virtuously in the Information Age

"Craig Detweiler is one of the best at interlacing theology and popular culture. Engaging, well-researched, theologically probing, and sensitive to cultural change without either defensiveness or fawning, iGods will inform both addict and skeptic."
--Robert K. Johnston, Fuller Theological Seminary; author of Reel Spirituality

"As digital tools creep down the age ladder all the way to toddlerhood and invade every space and hour of adulthood, Detweiler argues that conscientious people risk two extremes: succumbing to the avalanche or rejecting it outright. Neither one preserves what is best in digital experience, but we need a higher authority than ourselves to negotiate the right via media. Detweiler explains where that authority lies and in doing so provides one of the most important lessons in our time."
--Mark Bauerlein, author of The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future

"iGods walks us through a theology of technology that will be helpful for everyone who is a citizen of today's digital world. Detweiler brings cultural savvy, theological know-how, and transparent passion to this book, making it both thoroughly readable and immensely insightful."
--Brett McCracken, author of Hipster Christianity and Gray Matters

"Modern technology appears to make life easier, so we assume it must be a good thing. But Craig Detweiler isn't so sure, and we benefit from his exploration of its implications for our humanity. Read this remarkable book. You'll never look at your mobile device in the same way again."
--Phil Cooke, filmmaker, media consultant, and author of Unique: Telling Your Story in the Age of Brands and Social Media
