Summary

Making conscientious choices about technology in our families is more than just using Internet filters and determining screen time limits for our children. It's about developing wisdom, character, and courage in the way we use digital media rather than accepting technology's promises of ease, instant gratification, and the world's knowledge at our fingertips. And it's definitely not just about the kids.
Drawing on in-depth original research from the Barna Group, Andy Crouch shows listeners that the choices we make about technology have consequences we may never have considered. He takes listeners beyond the typical questions of what, where, and when and instead challenges them to answer provocative questions like "Who do we want to be as a family?" and "How does our use of a particular technology move us closer or farther away from that goal?" Anyone who has felt their family relationships suffer or their time slip away amid technology's distractions will find in this book a path forward to reclaiming their real life in a world of devices.

Easy listen with huge challenges.

Really enjoyed listening to this. Its content is insightful with very practical steps to help families put technology in the right place, all from a Christian mindset. Before even finishing the book was taking steps to free our family from all consuming nature of technology.

Eye Opening and Challenging

Great stuff to think through for the family and kids. Made me think again about my own habits and the habits I don't want my family members to develop.

Not just informative and wise but inspiring

It doesn't merely answer the question of "How do we deal with our kids and the screens that surround us and hog our attention?" It also explores the larger questions of "What are families all about? What makes life meaningful?" It presents a vision for these things that is both Christian and deeply humanistic and is told simply with real life examples.
