Game-changing. . . . Needed now more than ever before! –James Kelly, founder of FaithTech

Technology is not simply an invention of the computer age. It is, in fact, a foundational part of being human–and extends back to the very beginning of creation. But the way we interact with it has fundamentally changed. In this fully revised and updated edition of the popular From the Garden to the City, John Dyer examines technological reality through the lens of Scripture, gleaning insight from the best thinkers on technology, theology, and culture. He reveals how technology left unexamined can enslave us–yet understanding it with spiritual vision, the way God intends, is totally transformative.
This book will push you forward in your understanding of both technology and theology–and more importantly, into a deeper understanding of who you are as you seek to walk humbly with your God.” — Pete Phillips, director of the Centre for Digital Theology at Spurgeon’s College
