Technology can be a great gift. It allows us to communicate with people all over the world instantly. But it can also do great harm if not used wisely. This short book gives helpful suggestions for how to use technology to glorify God in our lives, as well as making us aware of what dangers there are in misusing technology.

God’s gifts can quickly become idols, and technology is no exception. In nine concise chapters, John Perritt helps young people think through why they use technology the way they do, and also why it can be unhealthy and dangerous. Pastors will want parents and youth leaders to make use of this valuable resource.
