    It's rare to find a book that relates Christianity, the spreading of God's Word, the 21st century, and reaching out to this technological generation in a way that changes how we view technology and how it can be used in a respectful, effective way to bring others to Christ. A great source of information for any technology leader or worker.

    Hipps work is unusual for a Christian non-fiction title; exploring not the tenets of the faith, but rather how technological advancements affect our faith.The main thrust is the examination of how changes in the presentation of information affect our minds and understanding of said information. Its really a great premise, well written, intellectually stimulating, and at times even witty. Moving through the print age, telegraph, radio, telephone, television, Internet and other forms of communication, Hipps details how the method the media format itself impacts our thought processes, and ultimately how we relate to those around us, the scriptures, and God Himself.Hipps is careful to mix up his carefully constructed philosophical ponderings with a splash of fun and kept me moving quickly through his brief work.Enough material is provided to stir the thought processes, prompt conversation, and provide a broad overview of the topic, while failing to deliver concrete suggestions and applications of the knowledge shared.While lauding a discrete set of benefits that advances in media have provided, Hipps seems more concerned with pointing out the danger and the warning signs surrounding each technological advance and then recommending readers think about the impact these technologies have on their lives.Maybe Ive missed something here. Yes, I realize media changes us, and I agree with the many, valid, well-phrased explanations of such changes. The question remains, though, have Hipps exhortations to examine our media choices impacted my life significantly? Im afraid not.Whatever the case, media buffs aside, I doubt this work will capture the imagination of the work-a-day Christian reader.
