FUTURECAST by George Barna

June 21, 2011

Mr. Barna writes, “The purpose of this book is to help you wade through the flood of available information to find that which is helpful, accurate, and useful to consider ways of connecting disparate facts and ideas into a coherent picture of today and the future. The ultimate goal is not simply to inform you, but to equip you to make strategic decisions about how to make the world a better place to live.  This is your God-given challenge and privilege.”

I totally agree with Mr. Barna’s quote.  This book will have little benefit to you if you just read the book for information.  But we can use this information to change the world one person at a time.  We need to have a passionate desire to see others come to Christ.  But we must live different from the world.  I particularly liked the last chapter because it gave practical advice how we can surrender our will to God’s will and allow Him to use us in  a mighty way.  “It starts with your decision to let it be about Him and to seal that choice with your unyielding commitment to being the person He created you to be.” pg.222.

I want to apply what I have learned from this book to my life.  I want to thank Tyndale Publishing Company for giving me a complementary copy to read and review.
