Why Read Books?

The current age is that of technology—but more importantly, that of the Internet. We thrive on Facebook, Twitter and blogs. We watch movies on flat screens, post pictures on Tumblr, and text instead of talk. Our world is instantaneous, filled with fast-paced sound bites and  bold colors to catch...

Windows Phone 7: Why I Left My iPhone

I seem to still be finding my niche for blogging here at Evangelical Outpost. I’ve become the local guru on hip-hop, which doesn’t surprise me too much. Looking through my history, the only other topic I’ve written enough about to warrant a conclusion about my interests would be technology.

More Cell Phones than Humans in the US

Apparently, there are now more cell phones than humans in the United States. Frankly, I was a bit surprised. I suppose I shouldn’t be, what with many people in business carrying a phone for their job in addition to their personal phone. I guess I’m just surprised because I still know some...

That’s Why They Call Them Browsers

By Ken Myers Lately, a lot of what I’m reading has been concerned with how I’m reading, with whether other people are reading, and with how reading influences our inner lives, both our brains and our souls. Nicholas Carr’s Atlantic essay, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” (July/August...

Five Things About the iPhone

By John Mark Reynolds I have longed for it, wanted it from afar, and envied my friends who owned it. I can only thank God that the Bible forbids coveting my neighbor’s ox and not his iPhone or I would have been in big trouble. Fortunately the strength of this particular exegesis was not long put...
