Further Reading

  • So how can technology enable the local church to help people experience foretastes of God’s Kingdom like never before? How can it help churches deliver life transforming experiences of God’s grace? Read Accelerating the Gospel with Technology for Chris Lim’s reflections on these questions. 
  • John Dyer’s Theology of Media for Coders and Artists is exactly what it sounds like. This video gives a great Biblical background to how we engage a digital world. 
  • We haven’t read Shaping a Digital World yet, but we’re excited to check out Derek Schuurman’s theology of technology. Theology nerds FTW.
  • One of the most universal contexts that we think about user experience in the Christian world is reading the Bible in a book vs. on a smartphone. How the Physical Form of a Bible Shapes Us reflects on the personal implications of that simple experience. 
  • The User Experience Team of One is a great practical resource offering a range of impactful approaches for inexperienced UX designers to apply when they may have limited time or resources.
  • TED talks are some of our favorite ways to learn, and Jane McGonigal’s Gaming can make a better world talk explains how games teach the habits of heroes.
  • Reality is Broken is the other book we haven’t yet read ourselves, but it suggests that “gamers are expert problem solvers and collaborators because they regularly cooperate with other players to overcome daunting virtual challenges.” We want to build that kind of culture!
