Reviews

"As I read this breathtaking book, I was surprised to find myself tearing up often, not because it is a book about tragedy or loss, but because Andy Crouch, perhaps more than any other writer of our day, perceives and names the deepest and most vulnerable longings of the human heart. The Life We're Looking For describes the confusion and contradictions of our cultural moment in clear and resonant ways and, more important, offers hope that we might find a beautiful way of living amidst them."--Tish Harrison Warren, author of Liturgy of the Ordinary and Prayer in the Night

"An artfully deep dive into the true nature of persons, and technology's impact upon us."--Dave Evans, co-author of Designing Your Life, co-founder of the Stanford Life Design Lab

"A thought-provoking look at the subtle, daily tradeoffs all of us make--between comfort and fulfillment, shallow connection and deep relationship--and how we can push back against the forces pulling us apart."--Ben Sasse, U.S. senator, author of Them

"With warmth and erudition, The Life We're Looking For engages readers in a personal meditation on the hidden costs of our technological dreams. What are we not seeing, hearing, tasting, experiencing because we have partnered with devices? What would it take to insist that personal technologies become personal instruments of wonder? Crouch asks us to summon the intelligence, resolve, and faith to regain lost ground."--Sherry Turkle, MIT professor, author of Reclaiming Conversation

"Crouch's trustworthy voice diagnoses our culture and gives a vision for us to redeem it. Crouch is a leader of leaders, and I'm grateful he stays out in front of the pack issuing wisdom."--Jennie Allen, bestselling author of Get Out of Your Head, founder of IF: Gathering

"A fascinating and eye-opening book on the need to discover what might, perhaps, be called the Holy Ghost in the machine."--Tom Holland, author of Dominion
