Publisher's Description

In the world of technology, there are just two kinds of people: digital natives and digital immigrants. Digital natives are those born after the advent of the internet. They are comfortable with swift technological change and take the presence of technology in their lives almost completely for granted. They have "digital DNA" flowing through their bodies. On the other hand, digital immigrants are those born before the advent of the internet. Their comfort level with our technology-soaked world is more variable. But they are affected by the digital invasion just as much as their native children.

With the latest research supporting them, Dr. Archibald Hart and Dr. Sylvia Hart Frejd uncover both the subtle and the dramatic ways digital technology is changing us from within, focusing their exposé on the impact on the spiritual life of individuals. Through insights from neuroscience and psychology, they offer readers therapeutic and biblical strategies for handling the digital invasion in order to become good stewards of their digital lives. Parents, educators, students, counselors, and pastors will especially appreciate this cultural wake-up call.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Dr. Sylvia Hart Frejd
Located in: Fredericksburg, VA
Submitted: February 19, 2013

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a Speaker, Counselor and Life Coach. I am passionate to see people thrive in their real life and relationships.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  My motivation for writing this book was observing how digitally dependent my 16 year old son had become. I started looking around and seeing we have been invaded! The digital world in many ways is holding us captive. This journey has been a personal one in helping my son engage in real life and coming to terms with my own digital addiction!

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  My desire is that everyone who reads this book will awaken to their relationship with technology and assess what technology has stolen from them and then reclaim their real life and relationships. Most importantly their intimate love relationship with God.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I have been challenged to manage my own digital usage and have realized how hard that truly is!

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My father Dr. Archibald Hart who I co-authored this book with has been such an inspiration to me! At 81 he is so wise and sharp as a tack!

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  This digital technology that has helped make our lives easier and more enjoyable is wonderful but must be managed or it will destroy the abundant God life has for each of us. I pray that God will give you wisdom as you learn how to be a good steward of your digital life.
