(A Mars Hill Audio blurb) Erik Davis, the author of TechGnosis, recognizes a Gnostic tendency in the contemporary understanding that information is an entity independent of a religious component. The emphasis on the acquisition of information leads modern society to embrace a disregard of matter and a hope for a utopian, technology-based community where there exists a “high velocity conversation between mind and matter.” However, this utopia is an exclusive community, where only those who can afford the in high cost of technology benefit while the less fortunate live with the consequences of the environmental destruction caused by rapid technological development.  Click here to go to get to the Mars Hill Audio Homepage.

For those of you who would like to find out more about Gnosticism by way of a less Orthodox interpretation, which we at The C.S. Lewis Study Group find much less congenial, whose analysis is more in line with  a more contemporary and liberal bent to it, you may want to look into a course that The Teaching Company has made available titledGnosticism: From Nag Hammadi to the Gospel of Judas.
