Technology is changing the nature of our world, our society and our personal lives. But the effects run even deeper, because it seems as though technology is changing what it means to be human. Reproductive technology can alter how human beings are created, developments in neuroscience are changing the way our brains work and artificial intelligence is starting to shift the way we understand ourselves. In a world that is increasingly dominated by intelligent machines what will human beings be for? These questions are too important to leave to the scientists and experts.
At the 2019 Keswick Convention I delivered a series of seminars exploring how we can respond to this revolution intelligently and practically as followers of Christ, and from the perspective of the historic biblical faith. This seminar series is not just for technical specialists but for everyone who wishes to understand our modern world better, engage more effectively and live more faithfully.
