Cultivating Contentment, Resilience, and Wisdom in the Digital Age (IVP)
By Jay Y. Kim
WHO: Jay Y. Kim, lead pastor of teaching at WestGate Church and teacher-in-residence at Vintage Faith Church.
HE SAYS: “We often fail to consider not only what these [digital] tools are doing for us but, more importantly, how these tools are forming us.”
THE BIG IDEA: This book explores the ways the digital age and its values are affecting Christian discipleship and explores the Fruit of the Spirit to find solutions in how we can pursue contentment.
THE PROGRESSION: In Part 1, “Cultivating Contentment,” the author examines how the digital age keeps us scrolling and wonders what the cost will be. In Part 2, “Cultivating Resilience,” he looks at patience and slowing life down. “Cultivating Wisdom” wraps up the book with a talk about faith and wisdom.
“We’ve come to realize our screens are not open doors but mirrors turning us away from others and toward ourselves.”
