‘The Life We’re Looking For,’ with Andy Crouch

Andy Crouch joins Matt, Derek, and Alastair to discuss personhood, technology, and recognition.

Andy Crouch brings a much-needed Christian perspective to understanding how humans relate to technology in his new book, The Life We’re Looking For. Do you know the connection between our basic need for recognition and our dependence on screens? What can we do to make our world more humanized? And when will we be able to achieve it? Derek, Alastair, and Matt discuss these questions and more with Andy in this high energy conversation.
