About-

Not so long ago the world resisted change, often using religious-reasoning. Small wonder--the printing press, a sixteenth century disruptive device, split Christianity. Now the globe welcomes digital disruption, even praising it as a solution for faltering economies.

Religions don't have much choice but to follow, because information is a prime asset of faith. Believers treasure and reframe their past, and present. However, both old and current data is now available in huge quantities, visually and instantly. Movies provide more spiritual guidance than holy texts, and terror merchants use the uncontrollable Internet to gain hearts and minds.

Nevertheless a turbulent re-mythologization of adherents towards peaceful versions of their belief can be tracked. There are positive things we can all do to help, which is just as well in a world that suggests only political acts count.

Endorsements & Reviews-

--Harley Couper, Reference Librarian, Tauranga City Libraries

"A very interesting take on things, suited to general readership."
--Douglas Pratt, Professor & Convenor, University of Waikato

''A fast-paced eclectic ride through some very challenging and bumpy waters. A very brave and lucid account of some highly complex and bewildering issues. Bryan Winters has laced together an incredibly diverse range of data and information and, with wit and a sophisticated vocabulary, given the multi-faith and technological layman a coherent account of perplexing times.''
--Mark Hensman (DTheol, Interfaith Dialogue), Director of Education, International Leadership Academies, Formerly, COO, Harrow International Schools
