Thinking about God in an Age of Technology

This chapter explores the ideas of theologians who have attended to the question of theology. Classically, theology sought the subordination of technology to spiritual values (Maritain, Guardini, Berdyaev, and Tillich are amongst those discussed). Despite some techno-optimists such as Teilhard de Chardin, the pessimism of Jacques Ellul has had most influence in recent periods, particularly on green, liberation, and feminist theologies. A narrativist approach to the question is examined but found wanting.

Keywords:   subordination, Maritain, Guardini, Berdyaev, Tillich, Teilhard de Chardin, Ellul, narrativist
