Flickering Pixels How Technology Shapes Your Faith.

Buy from these retailers:


Flickering Pixels make up the screens of life— from TVs to cell phones. They are nearly invisible, but they change us. This is the story of how technology shapes our life and faith without our knowledge or permission.

A decade ago, media guru Marshall McLuhan coined the now-famous phrase “The Medium is the Message.” Author Shane Hipps, examines McLuhan’s famous adage— and draws shocking conclusions for people of faith.


In this provocative book, Hipps takes readers beneath the surface of things to see how the technologies we use end up using us.


Not all is dire, however. “Hidden things have far less power to shape us when they aren’t hidden anymore,” writes Hipps. “We are only puppets of our technology if we remain asleep.”


Flickering Pixels will wake you up. And nothing will look the same again.
