Power Failure Part 1

The other day at Borders I picked up "Power Failure: Christianity in the culture of Technology" by Albert Borgmann. I started reading it after the Seahawks lost in OT. (The Broncos are getting blown out so all is ending well.) Borgmann is a philosopher at the University of Montana. What strikes me about this book so far (Intro and Chapter 1) is that Borgmann attempts to define our culture as a culture of Technology. I will be curious to see what Borgmann sees as a Christian response to this culture.

My one question is: Is he right? His definition of Technology is complex including the consumer culture but is there more to today’s culture?
