Book Summary of 2084 by John C. Lennox


The world today is at a place like no other in history. With advancements in technology, many people are living longer, certain diseases are being eradicated, and life has been made better in many parts of the world. 

Yet, as technology advances, questions arise as to “where humanity is going in terms of technological enhancement, bioengineering, and, in particular, artificial intelligence” (p. 9). 

Similar to what George Orwell did in 1984, John C. Lennox seeks to imagine what the world will be like in just a few decades, though, Lennox does so in a nonfiction manner citing researchers, leading atheists, and philosophers. 

Christians living in the present must also be prepared for the future. As technology advances, Christians must consider it in light of the Scriptures, not only so that they may weigh in on the morality of various technologies, but also to consider where this technology might be headed as a whole and what role it might even possibly play in the End Times. 

A Christian worldview is imperative in evaluating artificial intelligence properly and using it for the betterment of society rather than letting it be used for society’s destruction.
