Steve Jobs with Russian President Dmitry MedvedevI was just shown this article in the Wall Street Journal on the life of Steve Jobs and what he offered to the world. The article is written by Andy Crouch, author of Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling (a required textbook in our Bachelor’s curriculum). Not only does Crouch do an outstanding job of balancing a respectful appreciation for Jobs’ ingenuity with a sharp critique of what Jobs was actually offering the world, he also teaches us to view the world theologically and gives us a fantastic example of what it looks like for a Christian to skillfully engage the public in a secular forum.

I highly recommend reading this article in full:
