Reviews

'This is an important and valuable book because the author stresses the significance of theology in thinking about technological progress and places emphasis on the person of Christ in pondering the consequences of this progress upon the fate of humankind.' Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith '... this is a powerful attempt to articulate the theological dimensions of these debates, and is particularly welcome for its robust engagement with the philosophy of transhumanism... the book certainly represents a significant beginning in sketching out the emergent field of theology and technology as it seeks to follow its own path beyond the well-worn routes of science and religion.' Crucible 'Technology is one of the dominant forces shaping the emerging postmodern world. This book examines the religious foundations underlying this troubled faith in technology, as well as critically and constructively engaging particular technological developments from a theological perspective.'
