From the Garden to the City

From the Garden to the City : The Redeeming and Corrupting Power of Technology is the title of a short book by John Dyer, director of Web development at Dallas Theological Seminary.

From the Garden to the City deconstructs the concept of technology and examines it through the lens of Scripture. Studying Bible passages and insights from the best thinkers on technology, theology and culture, John Dyer shows how technology left unexamined can enslave us rather than honour God and fulfil his plan for us. With helpful observations and practical applications, he issues an urgent challenge to live faithful lives in this technology-saturated modern world.

This is an excellent book - faithful to the Bible - yet up to date with its knowledge of technology. I highly recommend it.
