Bio-Tech Century: In this seminal book, Jeremy Rifkin explores the epic marriage between computer technology and genetic engineering, and the historic transition into the Age of Biotechnology. Already, Rifkin explains, our economy is undergoing a massive shift away from the Industrial Age and into an era in which giant life-science corporations are fashioning a bioindustrial world. Humanity is on the brink of wielding greater control over the shape of life–how we are born; how our food supply is created; the traits our children may have–than has ever been imagined.

ABOUT THE INTERVIEWER: Ken Myers did his first radio interview when he was working in college radio. He was 19 at the time, and his first guest was Johnny Cash. Although he sometimes wonders if he peaked early, he claims that sociologists, historians, psychologists, and even economists can be more interesting than country music singers.
After completing his B.A. in communications with an emphasis in film theory, Myers went to work for National Public Radio, editing material for arts and performance programs. After three years, he decided to go to seminary in order to pursue a teaching ministry. He realized how theologically ill-prepared most Christians (including himself) were to contend with the non-Christian worldviews increasingly prevalent in major cultural institutions. Myers Since 1993, MARS HILL AUDIO has been committed to assisting Christians who desire to move from thoughtless consumption of contemporary culture to a vantage point of thoughtful engagement.
