Making good choices about technology is more than just using internet filters and determining screen time limits.
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, Andy Crouch shows that the choices we make about technology have consequences we may never have considered. He takes readers 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 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.
There’s a way to choose a better life than we’ve imagined.
