Steve Jobs Didn't Know He was a Christian
Carl Olson, Ignatius Insight
Since penning the post titled, "Yes, Steve Jobs, R.I.P., was an innovating genius. But...", I've been interested in finding out a bit more about Jobs' thoughts about or attitudes toward Christianity. This USA Today article about a new and detailed (650 pages) biography of Jobs written by Walter Isaacson contains this little nugget:
The book begins with a portrait of the young Jobs, who was rebellious toward the parents who raised him and dismissive of the ones who gave him up for adoption. Such feelings of abandonment probably contributed to Jobs' controlling nature as an adult, Isaacson writes, but he mercifully does not psychoanalyze in the book.
