Description

Christians have always been quick to adopt new technology for the benefit of the spread of the Bible. With the current shift to electronic texts which we can no longer touch, feel, drop, smudge, throw, open at random, etc., we are entering uncharted territory when it comes to access to the Bible. How is new technology and the changing format of texts affecting our use and understanding of Scripture? Rather than starting yet another rant about people's lack of Bible knowledge, this talk will attempt to think through the issues and provide an opportunity to develop solutions.
