Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In a study that is long overdue, renowned media studies expert Schultze (Internet for Christians) provides a clear-eyed critique of the perils of being seduced by the flash and glitter of information technology. No Luddite himself, Schultze does not advocate the eradication of the Internet or other such technological services. Rather, he argues, we must focus as much on the quality of our character as we do on technological innovation. He contends that our society is governed by infomationism, a quasi-religious faith in the power of information to improve our lives. Our infomationist society, however, values short-term technological goals over long-term humanistic ones, uses people instrumentally and devalues religious teachings on morality, community and humility that, in Schultze's eyes, foster virtuous living. He argues that we need to restore a society where meaning is more than measurement, intimacy is valued over observation and deep moral wisdom is esteemed above superficial knowledge. He proposes six habits of the heart discernment, moderation, wisdom, humility, authenticity and diversity and contends that these habits require organic community life rather than the virtual community of the Internet. For many, Schultze will seem like a voice crying in the wilderness, for by now it is clear that information technology has far outdistanced our moral sensibilities about it. Yet, despite its sermonic structure (three main points and a conclusion) and its didactic tone, Schultze's book offers a clarion call to create an authentic moral discourse about technology.
