Abstract:

As an electrical engineer, Derek Schuurman wondered, what do bits and bytes have to do with Christian beliefs? Sitting in a cubicle farm in the high technology industry, he had difficulty understanding what his work had to do with the kingdom of God. In a concise and accessible style, Schuurman explores a wide range of topics from why making technology is fun to why technology is more than technical. Besides technical implications, the high-tech world also has substantial legal, ethical, political, social and other nontechnical implications. Computer science thus needs to avoid reductionism and respect the diversity and complexity in creation.
