Transhumanism and the Image of God: Today's Technology and the Future of Christian Discipleship
We're constantly invited to think about the future of technology as a progressive improvement of tools: our gadgets will continue to evolve, but we humans will stay basically the same. In the future, perhaps even alien species and intelligent robots will coexist alongside humans, who will grapple with challenges and emerge as the heroes.

Exploring topics such as artificial intelligence, robotics, medical technology, and communications tools, he examines how everyday technological changes have already altered and continue to change the way we think, relate, and understand reality. By unpacking the doctrine of the incarnation and its implications for human identity, he helps us better understand the proper place of technology in the life of the disciple and avoid false promises of a posthumanist vision. We cannot think about technology use today without considering who we will become tomorrow.

Hope Now: Peace, Healing, and Justice When the Kingdom Comes Near
s there a wall between meeting the practical needs of people and meeting their spiritual needs? Can you only meet one or the other? In Hope Now, Dr. Albert L. Reyes tears down any existing walls that separate the joint biblical calling to meet both the spiritual and practical needs of people. Learn how these needs are two sides of the same coin and how both are not only doable but must be done.

Based on years of pastoral experience and service, Dr. Reyes knows firsthand how the spiritual and practical needs of people are connected. As sixth president and CEO of Buckner International since it’s founding as an orphan home to post-civil war children in Texas, Reyes leads Buckner International, a ministry that has been dedicated to transforming the lives of orphans, vulnerable children, families, and senior adults for more than one hundred years.
