5.0 out of 5 stars Seeing Our World Today Through the Eyes of Scripture, January 13, 2012
This review is from: iFaith: Connecting With God in the 21st Century (Paperback)
This little gem is perhaps best summarized by the author's own introduction in which he wrote, "This book is a journey with some of the real people in the Bible who didn't Twitter, text, or tote a BlackBerry or iPad, but who learned how to communicate with God in a powerfully intimate way."

As someone who is familiar with both the Bible and technology, this book was full of surprises and insights. Some made me smile, and some drew me in to the mind and heart of the author and the people in the Bible he studies in this book. It's also a window into what it's like being a pastor today.

It's about the size of an O'Reilly quick reference book and is saturated in Scripture. If you are leery of buzzwords (based on the iTitle), worry not. The insights do not distract, and they do make you think. At the end of each chapter, he humbly gives you his sources of inspiration and inspires you to read more.

This book energetically brings to life often unexplored narratives in the lives of people in the Bible who are not entirely well-known.

Is it particularly life-changing? Not exactly. That may be exactly his point. Rather, it's about exploring the practical reality of a relationship with God.
