According to media and technology writer Douglas Rushkoff, “Our society has reoriented itself to the present moment.  Everything is live, real time, and always-on.  It’s not a mere speeding up, however much in our lifestyles and technologies have accelerated the rate at which we attempt to do things.  It’s more of a diminishment of anything that isn’t happening right now.”  Michael Horton talks with Douglas about his new book, Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now, and asks him to apply his thesis to the world of contemporary Christianity with it’s emphasis on having your best life now.
