Finding God In Silicon Valley—Spiritual Journeys In A High-Tech World
Author : “Skip” Vincent Vaccarello
Description : God is working in the lives of people in Silicon Valley. God is doing the seemingly impossible in Silicon Valley--changing the hearts and attitudes of the rich and successful and those desperately pursuing riches, power, and prestige. Having a tradition of disrupting the status quo with technology, Silicon Valley may be poised to challenge its perception as a wasteland of faith as well. Finding God in Silicon Valley tells how God is working in the lives of people in Silicon Valley--venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, leaders of major companies, innovators in non-profit start-ups, scientists, and technologists. You will be inspired and challenged as you read their journeys of faith. The book provides lessons for anyone who has struggled with faith. Read how leaders got beyond the trappings of financial and business success to find God, overcoming personal struggle and even tragedy to come to know Christ, how they reconciled reason and faith and science and faith, and how they discovered meaning, purpose, and a calling for their lives.
