From the Garden to the City: The Place of Technology in the Story of God (audio)

ISBN: 9781545922668




John Dyer’s popular From the Garden to the City is back in this fully revised and updated edition, moving beyond moralism in order to examine the very nature of technology as essentially human and totally transformative. Perfect for both classroom use and individual contemplation, this book encourages listeners to open their minds to see our technological world with biblical vision. From ancient tools to modern devices, technology is part of what it means to be human and honor God Christian discussion of technology tends to focus along prescriptive lines. Don’t look at the wrong pictures. Don’t interact with pride or wrath on social media. Be careful not to join an immodest TikTok trend. Listen only to Christian music and Christian podcasts. But a biblical perspective on technology goes far deeper than how tools are used, and involves much more than the electronics that pervade today’s world. Technology is, in fact, a foundational part of what it means to be human-and it extends back to the very beginning of Creation. Technology was included in what God declared “good.” But like all things impacted by the fall, it has immense power to rewire us for good or bad.

John Dyer (1699 – December 1757) was a painter and Welsh poet turned clergyman of the Church of England who maintained an interest in his Welsh ancestry. He was most recognized for Wordsworth’s sonnet, To The Poet, John Dyer, addressed to him, and for Grongar Hill, one of Dyer’s six early poems featured in Richard Savage’s Miscellaneous Poems and Translations by Several Hands (February 1726), a collection of works featuring ‘Hillarian’ circle verse.
