Futurecast

By George Barna

What Today’s Trends Mean For Tomorrow’s World 

Description:

A timely look at the world we’re creating every day, with solid data to show the path our country is on and the emerging trends that will shape our world—and change each of our lives.

The world and culture are changing at a pace beyond anything ever seen in history. But where will all these changes lead? What’s in store for our government, economy, families, and churches? Between the Internet and other news media, we’re getting a lot of opinions, but the challenge is finding accurate facts that give us a real sense of what’s happening—and what’s likely to come.

There are three types of people when it comes to the future: those who will watch what happens, those who will make it happen, and those who will wonderwhat happened. Which will you be?

Our society has widespread and unprecedented access to information, but what do we do with it all? Who do we trust to accurately track our societal trends, interpret them, and see possibilities for the future—and how can we help to shape that future?

The answers lie in Futurecast, an insider glimpse of today’s world—and tomorrow’s. Researcher George Barna will inform you about the trends that are soon to change your life and environment, equip you to face them, and encourage you to stand among the visionaries who create the future rather than react to it.

My Review:  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

Futurecast is a complete examination of the elements of our culture today according to the statistics. Be warned. The statistics are even more depressing
than I expected. But George Barna doesn’t give into the depression. His premise is that if we understand the culture and use our understanding of it to
evangelize, we can reach the lost one person at a time.
