What does computer science have to do with God? Jonathan Stoddard shows how computing transcends computers themselves and finds its source in the God who speaks the world into existence. The way programmers write code gives them a unique insight into God’s all-powerful word. In fact, programmers image God when they use words to accomplish specific tasks in an orderly fashion. Like God, they can make their code beautiful in how effectively it carries out the task. Discover how God’s attributes inform the nature of computing and how constructing software can glorify him.
“Computer science and information technology have become more and more important in our world, and we greatly need the distinctively Christian vision of the subject that Mr. Stoddard offers. Highly recommended.”
