Editorial Reviews

`Review from previous edition Technology does not deprive us of the right to think in non-technological ways, even to think about God. Pattison does not profess to say where such thinking will finally lead. Our thinking about God in the technological context will be indeed a thinking `about',a thinking that circles around the mystery of God, and offers wider horizons than seeing the world as a stock of goods . . . A timely and sobering book.'John Macquarrie, Church Times
