Even the least technical among us are being pressed from all sides by advances in digital technology. We rely upon computers, cell phones, and the Internet for communication, commerce, and entertainment. Yet even though we live in this ‘instant message’ culture, many of us feel disconnected, and we question if all this technology is really good for our souls.
In a manner that’s accessible, thoughtful, and biblical, author Tim Challies addresses questions such as:
“How has life—and faith—changed now that everyone is available all the time through mobile phones?”
“How does our constant connection to these digital devices affect our families and our church communities?”
“What does it mean that almost two billion humans are connected by the Internet … with hundreds of millions more coming online each year?”
Providing the reader with a framework they can apply to any technology, Tim Challies explains how and why our society has become reliant on digital technology, what it means for our lives, and how it impacts the Christian faith.

The Next Story is the latest book by Tim Challies, author of the excellent book The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment. The description of The Next Story is intriguing and worth looking into and considering. I just downloaded a free audio version of the book and will be listening to the book over the next few days and weeks as I drive.
To obtain a free audio copy (which is what I did), simply go to Christianaudio.com during the month of May. Every month the website gives away a free audio book, many of which are worth downloading.
