    “The Analog Christian” by Jay Kim is a good read for the Christian believer (and those interested in Christianity) wanting insights on living in today’s age of technology. Indeed, while technology can be a good thing, it can also be bad if we are not careful and let it run our lives. Around 180 pages, the author suggests the types of decisions we need to make in living in the digital age, some of which are:

    – Loving and serving others vs. a self-centered life

    – Being joyful instead of comparing ourselves with others

    – Being patient instead of being impatient with others

    – Having a gentle disposition towards others instead of always being angry

    – Practicing self-control vs. self- indulgence

    The author makes many good points, including:

    – Looking to Jesus Christ instead of our fleeting feelings for ultimate joy

    – The many problems and futility of comparing ourselves with others (no, you don’t have to be like others, just be the person Jesus Christ created you to be!!!!!)

    – Various ways impatience with others and small things has taken over our culture

    – The many ways God has shown us His kindness (now treat others the same way!)

    – How being forgetful undermines our relationship with God and others (hint: stop thinking about yourself so much!)

    – Some characteristics God has called us to be like in today’s world

    – The dangers of digital addiction

    The book is easy to read and understand, has good spiritual and practical insights, is biblically uncompromising without being judgmental, and has good footnotes for further reading on the subject. Good read and will be read again and recommended. I was given a review copy by IVP in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
