Chapter Summary

This introduction chapter provides an overview of the book which takes an interdisciplinary approach in addressing the historical, social, cultural and political relationships between technology and religious experience in the contemporary Asian context. The book asks how a people's use of technology affects their experience of spirituality and the formation of religious identity and community? To what extent is the medium more important than the message? In what ways do developments in the latest technological breakthroughs such as the Internet influence how people in Asian societies constitute themselves as social beings, and how does it shape their experience of the sacred and the divine? Conversely, to what extent, and in what ways do religious beliefs and practices shape people's attitudes towards new technologies and their deployment?.

Keywords: Asia; charismatic technology; religious experience
