Technology has impacted every area of life, including religion. The use of sound systems and computers in public religious expression is just one way technology is being used in religious circles. Yet, what is often overlooked is the way that religion is shaping technology through philosophy and morality.

Religion and Technology in the 21st Century: Faith in the E-World examines the relationship of the two areas, and provides insight into the impacts religion and technology have on humanity. In examining the dual impact, the book points to a synergy that has traditionally been missed in previous research into technology or religion.
