Product Description

Our world is more connected than it has ever been. We can get information instantly from the other side of the world. We've become accustomed to having answers at the snap of our fingers. But what effect has this hustling, bustling, and worrying had on our communication with God? iFaith is a unique look at prayer and faith in the twenty-first century, calling you back to a place of rest, silence and peace with God. Written for teens and young people, pastor and blogger Daniel Darling uses insightful stories, humor and Scripture to help you reconnect with the ultimate reality of an intimate relationship with God through prayer.

Publisher's Description

We re a generation raised on instant: Instant formula. Disposable diapers. Satellite TV. GPS navigation. Online check-in. Automatic everything. We re always plugged in and wired. We re accustomed to having answers at the snap of our fingers. We re used to being in control.How does this affect our communication with God? This is the question iFaith seeks to answer. What has life at warp speed done to our souls? Has faith been replaced with a false sense of security? Has the digital and technological revolution made us more impatient with the God who delights in making His people wait?iFaith is a unique look at prayer and faith in the twenty-first century, calling us back to a place of rest and silence and peace with God.

Publisher's Weekly

Appealing to teens and young adults, especially when writing about religion, takes more than just appropriating their lingo and dropping a few pop culture references. Darling, columnist for Crosswalk.com and pastor at Gages Lake Bible Church in suburban Chicago, is astutely aware of this and brings some substance along with his punchy prose. The question the author addresses is a vital one--how does technology affect one’s relationships, especially with God? Darling warns young people against using technology to insulate themselves from the realities of life, as this results in missing where God is most present. He urges that they embrace an “unsafe life” and take some chances, because people who are outside of their cocoons of comfort feel God’s presence most acutely. A young, tech-savvy audience will be challenged but not threatened by the author’s suggestions, and they will find the reflection questions at the conclusion of each chapter especially helpful. The final chapter offers wise advice for living as a person of faith in a technologically driven world. Both young and old could heed these words. (Jan. 3) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    iF@ith by Daniel Darling connects with God in the 21st century through an in-depth study of the real people in the Bible who instantly communicated with God, heart-to-heart, in a personally intimate way. How do we connect with God in an age of pixels, bandwidth, high-speed and warp speed? Reading iF@ith will activate your faith and set you on a unique road in this connected generation in which life explodes with data racing ahead at the warp speed of thought. Leap on board and surf with iF@ith. Your life will never be the same!

    God certainly has a digital mission for this millennium. Where does prayer fit into the fast-paced and ever-changing scenario of today's technological revolution, where people are constantly plugged in and wired, with instant answers at their fingertips? iF@ith is Daniel Darling's perfect response to the digital generation of which he is an integral part. Practical prayer refreshes your prayer life and opens an instant, high-speed connection with God. Do the centuries-old, time-tested truths of Christianity connect with the modern expectations of the digital era?

    "We are an always-connected generation, weaned on warp speed, raised on instant formula, with life revolving around our ever-expanding devices, exploding with data traveling at the speed of thought." We send instant messages, emails and texts to people connected in the world wide web and get instant real-time answers in the blink of an eye. As we send and receive information and communication, we get instant answers, one-on-one, person to person. The 21st century "ushers in the march of progress and the rapid acceleration of communication." The lost art of letter-writing has been reinvented in digital format as we strive to paint a digital masterpiece, carefully weighing the pros and cons of each word and the significance of every phrase used to embellish our artwork.

    Global communication makes gigantic leaps across oceans, spanning countries and borders, transcending time zones. It is as easy as the click of a button."Nobody is ever out of reach, unavailable or offline." You will see Jesus form deeply in you and discover Him smiling at you through the all-important missives of emails, text and chat messages.

    In iF@ith, Daniel Darling enriches your walk with Christ through practical, revealing insights into the lives and times of biblical characters, those giants of faith who inspire our faith beyond the eye of reason. Faith is based on biblical fact. "The heart has its reasons of which reason cannot know." Christ died for us and His undying love for us is the reason for our faith. "Love's strength lies in love's sacrifice and He who suffers most has most to give."
