Craig Detweiler, director of the Center for Entertainment, Media, and Culture, will discuss his new book iGods: How Technology Shapes Our Spiritual and Social Lives Thursday, Dec. 5, at 4 p.m. in Payson Library.
In the book, Detweiler provides needed Christian perspective on navigating today's social media culture. He interacts with major symbols, or "iGods," of our distracted age--Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Pixar, YouTube, and Twitter--to investigate the impact of the technologies and cultural phenomena that drive us. He will be joined by Pepperdine professor Bert Ballard, who will provide a response.
