January 31, 2018 at 07:51PM Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow

Homo Deus is the Yuval Noah Harari’s follow-up to Sapiens. The latter is his broad take on the history of humanity, while this newer tackles his projected future.

I read both via audiobook, which somewhat breaks a personal rule. I find that I do best with audiobooks that have a narrative structure, like history or biography. Listening to more conceptual books like these, I find, leads me to getting more the breadth of the book than the depth of it.

I got enough out of my auditory reading of this to appreciate the overall ideas and be left wanting more. There is much I’d like to return to in the print version and engage his work through my Christian understanding…but golly there’s a lot of competition in my reading queue.
