All this week reviewers across the blogosphere will be posting their reviews of Tim Challies’ The Next Story: Life and Faith After the Digital Explosion. Check out the review links below and follow me on Twitter to follow the discussion.

Anxious for Nothing - Is there such a thing as too much information?
Living Hope - “One of the most important books you need to read right now.”
Changed by the Gospel - “I do NOT think you should read this book if you are not willing to give some serious thought about how technology is affecting your life.”
Delving into the Scriptures -”Technology changes society in a way that cannot be undone.”
Wick I AM - “I plan on reading portions of this book again, and recommending it to others.”
The Squirrel Factor
Beggar to Beggar -”The best part about this book is that it doesn’t leave you in a state of technological conviction. Instead it gives you several helpful approaches to engage you and your family and help navigate the seas of seemingly endless technological options.”

I just wanted to post a quick CONGRATULATIONS! to Dr. John Walton, his team of scholars, and my colleagues at Zondervan Academic on winning the ECPA Christian Book Award in the reference category for the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary: Old Testament (affectionately dubbed “ZIBBCOT” around Z).
This commentary set took years of hard work by all involved to produce. It’s an amazing blend of accessibility and thorough academic work with full-color photographs. If you’re preaching or teaching out of the Old Testament at all I encourage you to look at this set.
Here’s a humorous video a colleague made to help spread the word about this set. Gotta love the little pb&j manna sandwiches.
