Read 12 Ways Your Phone is Changing You Online Free - When the smartphone was introduced, many of us quickly adopted it into our lives--too quickly to stop and think about the future costs we were unboxing along with the device. Now blessed with this revolutionary piece of handheld technology, we try to wield it with wisdom, fending off anxieties about how our digital habits impact our spiritual health. Drawing on the insights of numerous thinkers, published studies, and his own research, writer Tony Reinke identifies twelve potent ways our smartphones have changed our lives--for good and ill. Reinke calls us to cultivate healthy habits for smartphone use in the digital age, encouraging us to be grateful for technological advance, develop skills aimed at maximizing the blessing that we (and others) can receive through our phones, and grow in the wisdom we need to avoid the many pitfalls that exist with such a powerful tool.

(I listened to the audiobook version of this book on my iPhone. An irony that is not lost on me.)
This is a book you will hate. One that you will love. One that you will love to hate. And one that you will hate to love.
Because this book is a mirror to your heart, and at some point while readi...

Excellent conversation on the pros and cons of smart-phones from a Christian point of view. I tend to be a highly suspicious technology geek. I am drawn to the latest technology while also sitting back and worrying about this is changing the world and me. I like how Mr. Reinke made the distinctio...

The best way to summarize this book is probably to let the author do it.
In the last twelve chapters, I have warned against twelve corresponding ways in which smartphones are changing us and undermining our spiritual health:
- Our phones amplify our addiction to distractions (chapter 1), and thereb...

Thank God that Mr. Tony Reinke wrote this book. Incredibly timely -so don't wait to read it... it could be too late-. Mr. Reinke's book is well researched, Biblical (an arsenal of Bible verses as footnotes support his points), and super well balanced. It will make you think and talk about what yo...

This book is convicting and hope-giving, and should be required reading for every Christian today. I read a pre-pub version in January and immediately made changes in my smartphone use.
What I appreciate about Tony Reinke's book is that it doesn't merely provide a checklist of behaviors to change...

"Self criticism in the digital age is a necessary discipline - an act of courage... Our personal freedom from the misuse of technology is measured by our ability to thoughtfully criticize I and to limit what we expect it to do in our lives. Our bondage to technology is measure by our inability to...

This is an incredibly timely and challenging book. I appreciated Tony's approach of, "Hey, I'm a tech user and a Christian too. Let's talk about how the two work together" as opposed to a legalistic anti-tech perspective. That's not to say Tony is pro-tech: there's a few chapters that will make y...

Livro muito interessante e sobre um tema bastante atual: os smartphones estão mudando você! Foi difícil, mas edificante, ouvir cada uma das reflexões do autor acerca de como utilizamos nossos telefones hoje, ainda mais para alguém que usa tanto o celular como eu.
Se você quer fingir que os smartph...

This is one of those books that you are not sure you want to read because you are afraid that you might be convicted of something you aren't ready to let go of. This is a most amazing read. It isn't a "get rid of your phone" book at all. Gentle suggestions of "why" and "have you thought about it...

The obvious point of this book is to point out that our smartphones are changing us, for better or worse. I thought Reinke had a very balanced approach to the topic as he urges us to, “avoid both extremes: the utopian optimism of the technophiliac and the dystopian pessimism of the technophobe."...
