The part is going directly to find a devoted Christian method of technological know-how in the middle of the final cultural shift from modernism to postmodernism as person who completely embraces the necessity for every worldview to offer its personal account of the way technology “works.” For the Christian, this means the necessity for a theology of technology. the second one part methods the relation of God to His construction via a strong trinitarian theology that highlights the divine motion of the transcendent reasons of the daddy, mediated during the Son, and taken to fruition via the immanent presence of the Spirit.

Then figuring out is defined when it comes to faithfully responding to God’s revelation in His be aware and international, responses that come with either submission to “order as given” and inventive stewardship in dealing with “order as task.” interesting God in our understanding could be the Christian’s major drawback, instead of narrowly pursuing the delight of humanly formulated figuring out standards. ultimately in regards to the doing point, being reliable stewards of our clinical presents calls for that we “do” as convinced, attentive and submissive servants who're dedicated to the gracious authority of His be aware, His Church, and His international. within the ultimate part, in searching out how one can “do” nearly as good pals within the clinical tradition of our occasions, technology & Grace describes how Christians are to be stable stewards of God’s want and His judgment in medical paintings. we're to have fun within the end result of our universal labors with our non-Christian colleagues but in addition we're not to overlook our legal responsibility, in love, to warn them of the wrath of God that may pass judgement on persisting unbelief.
