God, artificial intelligence and you

Stephen Driscoll

Quantity

Artificial intelligence is coming. No life will be left untouched. What does Christianity have to say about this brave new world? What will living for Jesus look like in a world where humans, made in God’s image, coexist with intelligent machines made in our image?

Author, pastor and self-confessed ‘tech realist’ Stephen Driscoll answers these questions with a deep dive into the intersection of faith and technology. Avoiding the extremes of both the tech worshippers and the ‘doomers’, Driscoll offers accessible and illuminating insights into the nature of AI, along with practical tips on how Christians might use this technology for good. Most of all, he shows how the deepest structures of biblical thought will equip Christians to live with AI.

A timely read

Driscoll provides a fascinating historical perspective on the impact of technology on society - it is a fresh, interesting and non-cliched way of assessing our culture today. Using the biblical framework of creation, fall,  redemption and new creation, he helps us think through the role and impact of A.I. Each of those chapters addresses A.I. its inevitability, its potential for good, and its potential for harm but all the while helping us to think theologically about this subject. He points us clearly to Christ and our need for Him. A.I. will change our society for good and evil, but this book helps us prepare. Driscoll warns us that human relationships may become more compromised as people turn to A.I. for unchallenging and affirming friendships - for some, this is already here. It will be hard to protect the next generation from the further destruction of the social world. We are created to worship the Lord and love one another - the church must continue to display this. As I read this, I wondered if somebody could use this book to present the goodness of the gospel to a sympathetic reader who is not a Christian. It shows our need for the Lord when considering the potential harm of A.I .The second half of the chapter on the cross pulls no punches - humanity is corrupt, and if we create a perfectly moral A.I., will it be able to show mercy to people? Grace and righteousness are only found at the cross. This is a timely book which not only provides insight into technological change but reinforces our glorious hope found in Christ alone.
