While numerous books have been written in recent years dealing with the need for a "green" movement within the evangelical community, few have set out to deal so directly with both the religious and societal impacts of technology as rigorously as Swearengen does. I have yet to read a book on technology and culture that has been as thoroughly researched and clearly footnoted as Swearengen's text. This book truly serves as a superb jumping off point for the concerned individual that wishes to learn more about the spiritual impacts of the techno-centric society we live in. Swearengen's keen mind and sharp wit coupled with his thorough research and engineering background make this book truly live up to its promise of being a "prophetic primer."
