Dr Jantz Presents "#Hooked"
Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
There is nothing like the heady feeling of having the world at your fingertips. But if you’re not careful, what you start out controlling has a way of controlling you.
We live in a world of contracting technology. The 52-inch big-screen television has telescoped down to the tiny screen of an iPod. Being accessible takes on new meaning when you’re carrying around your computer. Connection has become compulsory, and expectations have taken a quantum leap toward the tyrannical. All of this technology is exciting and amazing and compelling. It draws you in and alters your world and your expectations; it begins to define who you are. Such powerful things should be approached with caution, but many people throw caution to the wind when it comes to the latest technology.
Hooked will speak enthusiastically and frankly about all the gizmos and gadgets, social media magnets and Internet sidetracks. It will present a balanced, practical approach to using technology without losing control. Real-life cautionary tales will be presented along with biblical applications and advice.
The book is written in a conversational style, with an extended section at the back of each chapter for self-reflection and personal examination. The study questions at the end of each chapter will be for use in individual study.
