Publisher's Summary

When the smartphone was introduced, many of us quickly adopted it into our lives - too quickly to stop and think about the future costs we were unboxing along with the device. Now blessed with this revolutionary piece of handheld technology, we try to wield it with wisdom, fending off anxieties about how our digital habits impact our spiritual health.

Drawing on the insights of numerous thinkers, published studies, and his own research, writer Tony Reinke identifies 12 potent ways our smartphones have changed our lives - for good and ill. Reinke calls us to cultivate healthy habits for smartphone use in the digital age, encouraging us to be grateful for technological advance, develop skills aimed at maximizing the blessing that we (and others) can receive through our phones, and grow in the wisdom we need to avoid the many pitfalls that exist with such a powerful tool.

This Book Will Change You

If you've never scrutinized your use of technology before, get ready. "12 Ways" will make you re-think the role that your phone has been playing in your life. There's a good chance it's ugly, especially if you take Tony's words to heart, but don't be dismayed, because there is an even greater chance to use technology as a way to glorify God and live in awe of the created world. And Tony tells you how.

Required reading for all Christians!

I loved this book!! More enlightening than convicting in discerning our own online habits & hearts. Every Christian should read this book. Technology changes all of us, but it doesn't have to be for the worse. As long as we alert ourselves to it's snags, we can learn to control it, not the other way around.

wish I could share it with everyone

as part of the millennial generation I'm plagued by having everyone my age be submerged in phones. although that's not how I grew up in tried to conform to it. this book gave me comfort in ignoring the trend and going with God instead of the approval of masses :)

Practical and challenging!

My 21 year old son recommended this book and said he'd like everyone he knows to read it. Now I understand why.

very insightful

I would definitely recommend this book and I will probably listen to it at least a couple more times. Lots of insight on how technology influences us for the good and for the poor spiritually with a lot of good backup in Scripture. Provides much insight and good reflection of how the Bible does address everything including living in the digital age. Bible is timeless and applicable to all generations!

A timely word for our smartphone conundrum

Solid questions and solid answers regarding our smartphones. Thoughtful, well-researched; dense at times but meaningful and well organized. Most importantly the book ends with Redemptive Gospel hope.

Every Christian needs to read

Definitely 5 stars, I have been listening ( audible version) of this book and the Lord is working in my heart. I didn't even think I had an issue with my smartphone, but I think this book showed me ways I hadn't even considered. Don't let the years of "nothing" become your whole life, I need a break from my phone.
