Tony Reinke is a journalist and senior writer for the Christian blog desiringGod.org. He hosts the popular Ask pastor John podcast and is the author of several books including Lit!: A Christian Guide to Reading Books and Newton on the Christian Life.

In the book: “ Smartphone Generation ” Tony makes us think about the following question: Who is in control? You or your smartphone? In just a few years, the smartphone has become a part of us, fully integrated into our daily lives. Never disconnected, always within reach, we now wave a powerful technological magic wand that we can barely master. This revolution thus poses some enigmas. Always connected, yet we seem more and more distant from each other. Still efficient, yet we have never been more distracted. Drawing on the thoughts of many thinkers, published studies and his own research, writer Tony Reinke identifies twelve transformations that our smartphone brings to our lives, for better and for worse. Reinke calls us to develop healthy habits in the digital age, he encourages us to maximize the many blessings, avoid the pitfalls, and use wisely the most powerful gadget of human connection ever invented.
