In Carpe Manana, this "outside the box" thinker offers strategies for leaders to put their faces, not their backs to the future. The problem, as Sweet sees it, is that the church is blind to the changes that are dragging us forward. "There are now some companies who absolutely want to change the world more than the church does." The church is at a crossroads: it will either claim the the future as a new dawn and embrace it as opportunity, or it will see the future as dusk and hide from the darkness of the day. Sweet believes that God is already in our future, and that God will be there with or without us: "An Act 29 movement is afoot." This book serves as a "naturalization manual" to help Christians achieve full citizenship in the new postmodern world. Cover color may vary, depending on stock.
