Shaping a Digital World: Connecting Bytes and Beliefs
Derek Schuurman (Redeemer University College)
In this talk, Derek Schuurman will present some of the ideas in his recent book Shaping a Digital World (InterVarsity Press, 2013), which explores a Christian perspective of computer technology. He argues that computer technology is not neutral, but value-laden with substantial legal, ethical, social, cultural and faith implications. Computer technology is part of the possibilities in God’s good creation, although fallen, it is an area we are called to use and develop responsibly.
