Dr Mohler has an excellent overview of the significance of the life of Steve Jobs (1955-2011). In it there is this important paragraph that bears on any study of history:
"Christians considering the life and death of Steve Jobs will do well to remember once again the power of an individual life. God has invested massive creative abilities in his human creatures. These are often used for good, and sometimes deployed to evil ends. Steve Jobs devoted his life to a technological dream that he thought would empower humanity. He led creative teams that developed technological wonders, and then he made them seemingly necessary for life in the digital age."
