Do you take control of your digital devices? If you’re like most of the world, then probably not. There are tons of Christian books out there on the digital world, some of them are really good, others are just ok. But most of them take a negative approach to technology, the thing I like about this short book is that the authors takes a positive, but cautious approach to technology. Let me explain…
technology is an all encompassing topic, it isn’t just about our alarm clocks or TVs anymore, its about our phones, our social media our messaging platforms and so much more. Technology nowadays includes almost every area of life. However, contrary to the way some Christians might tae about technology, it isn’t all bad.
Christian must beware of how we use technology and whether or not it is a benefit to us in this life.
In Digital Dominion, Jeff Mingee asks the reader five questions for then to consider as they evaluate their use of technology. Each questions forms the basis of a chapter that will challenge you and make you think about your use of technology. Here are the five questions;
- Am I in control?
- How is this shaping me?
- Does this help me flourish?
- Can I discern wisdom and folly?
- Am I being missional?
Each chapter is full of helpful insights, biblical wisdom and challenging questions to help you evaluate how you are using media and whether it’s for the glory of God or not. Whilst this book will not make you comfortable, it is a book that you could find helpful.
One of the things I liked most about this book was the emphasis it placed on making our engagement online missional. It is easy to get sucked in an distracted by countless videos and notifications with our devices, this book will challenge you to think about how you can take all of that and help you point others towards Jesus. Check it out for just £4.99 and let me know what you think.
