The Tech-Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place by Andy Crouch

Into the Wild

Read The Tech-Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place Online Free - Making conscientious choices about technology in our families is more than just using internet filters and determining screen time limits for our children. It's about developing wisdom, character, and courage in the way we use digital media rather than accepting technology's promises of ease, instant gratification, and the world's knowledge at our fingertips. And it's definitely not just about the kids.
Drawing on in-depth original research from the Barna Group, Andy Crouch shows readers that the choices we make about technology have consequences we may never have considered. He takes readers beyond the typical questions of what, where, and when and instead challenges them to answer provocative questions like, Who do we want to be as a family? and How does our use of a particular technology move us closer or farther away from that goal? Anyone who has felt their family relationships suffer or their time slip away amid technology's distractions will find in this book a path forward to reclaiming their real life in a world of devices.

Andy Crouch is among the first parents to have nurtured children from clearly-too-young-to-have-a-smartphone to now-old-enough, during a time in which smartphones were in fact available for that whole period. It's only been ten years since the iPhone's debut. And in that time Crouch's eldest chil...

I didn't expect a book dealing with everyday use of technology would be so encouraging, so beautifully written, and so deeply moving. But it's Andy Crouch, so there's that.

I was really excited when this book came up in a group chat I'm in with other Christian school educators. As a middle school teacher in a 1:1 environment (every student has a laptop) in the Silicon Valley, I'm becoming more and more interested in how we can support families in making wise technol...

Where do I begin? This is the best, most practical book I've read so far in 2017. It's a short, easy read, too. I can't recommend it enough. Deep down I've wanted to make some changes & lead my family better in this area, but have lacked the self-discipline, courage, & direction. Thankful...

This isn't a step by step list of what to do and what not to do. It's a book that helped me think of the foundation upon which we are building our family life, and it definitely made me think. The whole time I was reading it, I thought about how I'd like to hand it out to every parent in our chur...

This is a very insightful book, filled with wisdom and practical applications about technology in the home, from a Christian perspective. Andy Crouch is clear from the beginning that technology itself is not "bad." It can make our lives richer and more efficient, if used correctly. But if not used...

It’s tough to know how to parent when there are so many technological devices around. We can’t really look back to see how our parents did it or how generations before us handled iPhones and tablets and internet. In our house, my technology parenting questions are mostly a result of my son creati...

My wife and I have a beautiful 16 month old daughter. She loves to play around and she really loves to read. Given my profession, the fact that she loves books brings joy to my heart! Although she loves books, probably more than any other form of entertainment, I still have the difficult task of...

Summary: A book for taking steps to put technology in its proper place, allowing persons to grow in wisdom and courage instead of giving in to an "easy everywhere" life. I think anyone who uses our modern technology--computers, tablets, gaming systems, and especially smartphones, realizes how powe...

I’ve been on a bit of an Andy Crouch kick lately. A friend recommended his book Strong and Weak which I read and loved but have yet to review. Then right before we left for NYC, I read his book on culture making. It was fascinating to enjoy the trip with all those thoughts rattling around in my h...
