""In a context increasingly pervaded by artificial intelligences of various kinds, the contributors to AI, Faith, and the Future have given us something that is not usually found or even pursued in most discussions on AI: wisdom. The book provides a helpful model for how we might navigate the ever-emerging landscapes of contemporary life. In doing so, it allows us to imagine a technological future that is not only possible, but good."" --Kutter Callaway, Fuller Theological Seminary ""Using plain language, AI, Faith, and the Future shows us why we can't hide from artificial intelligence. We are always connected. Our lives are data for big companies. We love the convenience but hate the surveillance. We are overwhelmed by information and misinformation. Here at last is a book that speaks to our worries by addressing the social, economic, and spiritual impact of artificial intelligence. Timely and thoughtful."" --Ron Cole-Turner, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary ""This is an essential read dripping with intellectual challenge and biblical foundations to equip the reader to formulate a Christian worldview concerning the implications of AI. We all must learn how to handle this complex, data-driven technology wisely, to perceive the (un)intended consequences to human flourishing in a world of AI, and to vigilantly work toward God's endgame, which far exceeds anything AI could ever promise."" --Patricia Shaw, CEO, Beyond Reach Consulting Limited ""The authors of this book bring just the right types of expertise and the clarity of their own ongoing conversation to the essential questions that AI poses for our faith and our future. For better or worse, AI is among us, and this book will help us identify, manage, and--who knows--maybe even love it."" --David Brenner, Board Chair, AI and Faith ""AI, Faith, and the Future is an impressive work, both in its scope and in its insight. . . . It turns out that the Christian tradition has much to say that would be useful for the designers and users of AI to hear. In retrospect, it should have been obvious that ancient wisdom on personhood is relevant now more than ever, but this book provides proof."" --Nathan Colaner, Seattle University
