Item Description...
From a leader in the field of religion and science come these reflections on the role of technology in human life and culture. Philip Hefner sees the human spirit at issue in our assessment of and attitude toward technology and the many technological creations that humans spawn. Technology, he argues, tells us much about ourselves-especially our innate drive toward exploration of possibilities-and poses questions about the final meaning of creating, of human cultural evolution, and even the being of God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Unfolding truth  Mar 13, 2004
The read is essential for anyone trying to bring together the worlds of religion and science. In a conversational style, P. Hefner shows the path that we are walking down as human kind creates itself into what we hope will be closer to god's image. He establishes the parameters for a conversation of man's secular and religious purpose. And creates a hope for a dynamic faith that expands with the human technological boundaries in which science becomes a part of god's plan not an adversary. Wonderful binding words that starts to piece together the puzzle of religious faith and science.
Trying to Understand Technology, Humanity & God from Below  Jul 2, 2003
I assume Hefner is true to his confession's (ELCA) stance on the Holy Bible, that it is errant. This assumed, Hefner can easily make such unorthodox statements about God implying that technology and true spirituality exist around the same "imagination."

This plays out so far that Hefner even concludes "Technology is even a sacred space."

This totally disregards Scriptures as what they say they are, the true revealer of the Creator of all things, including the atomic order that Hefner writes about as well as all the components necessary for any technology to occur.

Thus, what Hefner denies is the basics of the theology from above, that God has revealed man's rebellion and constant desire to be free of any true relationship to Him. Thus, this freedom plays itself out in our time as so illustrated and divined here by Hefner as true faith, creating one's own dreams to their ultimate limits. Who needs a God of salvation and redemption from such?

Attractive to a sinful, theology from below, but for the theology from above that came down at the Incarnation, this is pitiful but imaginative celebration of man's alientation and rebellion against the Creator's will for mankind.
