Theology in a Digital World

“Theology in a Digital World is a collection of essays and lectures dating from 1984 to 1987. It was published by the United Church Publishing House and can be obtained through that source. Published here as Web documents are subsequent reflections on technology from a theological perspective. All of these are copyright © David Lochhead, 1995.”

“A hermenutic of digital technology is likely to resist that direction and to stress in its place a more playful interpretation of what the meaning of the text might become.

But in place of a heteronomous authority of the original context, the authority will one that emerges out of the covenant of our play. ”

Oldies but interesting.
