From the printing press to radio to television, technological advancements have advanced kingdom work for centuries. Most of us have participated in virtual worship services or Bible studies. What’s coming next? As virtual reality becomes increasingly prominent, churches must assess how to respond thoughtfully and biblically. Dr. Darrell Bock walks us through a critical, theological, and pastoral evaluation of new technologies like virtual reality so that we can faithfully advance the gospel into the future.
