'It's a rare feat for a work to keep teaching and informing and blowing your mind, page after page after page. Shane Hipps has the extraordinary ability to articulate, explain, and educate.' -- Rob Bell 'This book is a masterful expose of our media-saturated world and its hidden influence. But it also contains the seeds of a creative response that could change everything. Shane Hipps points us toward a hidden path out of the media maze that we can't afford to miss.' -- Andy Crouch, author of Culture Making on Flickering Pixels 'Shane Hipps pulls back the curtain on technology, exposing the subconcious influences that wreak havoc on our existence. It's brilliant, eye-opening, and a must-read for any thoughtful person pursuing a countercultural life in the digital age.' -- Gabe Lyons, coauthor of UnChristian on Flickering Pixels
