Part I lays the groundwork for theological analysis by tracing "secular" philosophical accounts of modern technology's shape, origins, meanings, and ethical implications, looking specifically at Martin Heidegger and two of his interpreters, George Grant and Michael Foucault.
Part II develops an account of faith's seeking to hear the claim of Christ amid technological life. Viewing technology as a human mode of thought that comes to approach all things and relationships as susceptible to human ordering and management, Brock explores how faith opens up trajectories for new ways of living with others elided by technological rationality.

University of Notre Dame
"Christians are often so naïve about the power of technological culture in our lives. Brian Brock isn't. With sobering realism and Trinitarian clarity of vision, Brock shuts down happy optimism and focuses hope only in cross and resurrection, as worked out in the nitty-gritty particularities of our lives. The voices of Bonhoeffer, Barth, and Augustine, which Brock here brings to bear on the overpowering domination of technology, are a gift to any seeking an alternative vision."
Duke Divinity School
"This is as good a treatment of Heidegger's account of technology as any that we have, and a more appropriate theological response. Brian Brock is going to be one of the important theologians of the future."
Trinity College, Cambridge
"A considered and mature statement of a serious position on a highly pertinent topic. . . . An extremely valuable contribution."
University of Oxford
"Remarkable. . . . It is easy to criticize the technocratic spirit, but much harder to point out an alternative. This book does."
Kings College, Aberdeen
"A fine treatment, both in its scope and in its perceptive analysis. . . . Brian Brock articulates judgments with force and clarity."
University of Erlangen
"Brock's Christian Ethics in a Technological Age is not just one more contribution to the ethical and moral discourse on technology assessment. It pushes that discussion to a whole new level by meeting the need for a fundamental reflection on the ethical challenges presented by modern technology."
