Prayer in the Digital Age: by Matt Swaim
Author: Matt Swaim
|The digital age is an age of information overload. In this noisy, technology-driven world, full of important news and urgent messages, spending silent time in prayer can seem impossible.|
In his second book, Matt Swaim brings to light the obstacles to prayer inherent in our digitally-connected culture and explores both the challenges and benefits of living a Christian life in the 21st century. Drawing on the spiritual wisdom of such masters as St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Therese of Lisieux, and Venerable Pope John Paul II, Swaim provides practical suggestions for learning how to "unplug" and incorporate prayer into one's daily life.
Delve into how technology truly affects our faith:
In a culture suffering from information overload, what's the difference between knowing facts about God and actually knowing God?
How does our desire to be entertained interfere with knowing God as He really is, rather than just as we want to perceive Him?
What are the distinctions between employing media and information as tools to aid evangelization and spiritual growth while avoiding a purely consumer approach to the faith?
How can information overload deaden our ability to listen?

Matthew Swaim works at Sacred Heart Radio in Cincinnati, Ohio and is the producer of "The Son Rise Morning Show," a nationally syndicated program on the EWTN global Catholic radio network. He holds a B.S. degree in Media Communications (2002) from Asbury College.
Though serving in many non-Catholic Christian ministries prior to his conversion, Swaim entered the Catholic Church during the Easter Vigil of 2005, and his "zeal of conversion" brings an added excitement to his practice of the faith.
He and his wife Colleen reside in Cincinnati, Ohio.
