Publisher's Description

Today's Most Troubling Trends about Faith and Culture in America

We live in a tumultuous time. Upheavals and reversals in culture, popular opinion, morality, race relations, socioeconomic status, and so much more have entire generations feeling off balance or out of touch. How do we keep pace with the breathtaking rate of change in our society when we can hardly find time to keep up with our racing newsfeeds? And in the face of such enormous cultural forces, is there anything we can do to help shape our culture?

With America at the Crossroads, bestselling author and cultural analyst George Barna turns his researcher's eye on the most significant trends of our moment in history, compiling and distilling the most salient information for busy readers who want to shape culture rather than allow it to shape them. Anyone who has felt overwhelmed by our swiftly changing times will appreciate Barna's extensive research and his "bottom line" approach.

    SUMMARY:

    Listing, summarizing, researching, and analyzing current trends in America and the influence on culture is shared in the new book, America At The Crossroads. With chapters on faith and spirituality, government and politics, lifestyles and perspectives, as well asaction that can be taken, an award-winning author and founder of Barna Group (a research firm that specializes in faith-related surveys), George Barna, explores the patterns of thought and behavior that provide insight into society.

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    As America continues to change, some for the better with some for the worse, it is interesting to see those changes and the consequences on a number of factors. With churches changing yet also being affected, America At The Crossroads provides summaries and key facts on how people view and feel about America. Maybe a good book to examine closer, churches, pastors, leaders, teachers and parents may find some direction from this information on which direction to head next.

    RATING:

    It has been the topic of many conversations lately that the America we thought was once great is no longer a great one. It has been altered by so many factors of late that to try and pin point them out would be difficult. I do believe though that it is an accumulation of a ton of wrong steps toward where we are and where we are headed at this time. America at the Crossroads by George Barna has painstakingly taken the responsibility to research most of the epically transformative issues that are shaping America today such as socioeconomic status, race relations, and cultural differences. These issues are altering our America be them good or bad, they have changed how we all see America as a whole and how America functions as a whole. It will be the most difficult suggestion for Barna's readers to implement but we, all of us, have to change how we are as individuals. We cannot think that we do not have the power to do this we are the majority as a collective and need to be one in order to get America back on the right track. One powerful read. I received a copy for this review from Baker Books and all opinions are my own.

    "America At The Crossroads" by George Barna is an excellent title addressing the issue implied by the title: America's future - spiritually, economically, socially, etc. The title is around 190 pages covers such topics as:

    1. Faith and spirituality - our religious beliefs, behavior, what we believe about the Bible, insights about the unchurched, etc.

    2. Government and politics - where America seems to be headed (liberal, conservative, moderate, etc.), our national priorities, ideology, and how involved we are in the political process (voting, activism).

    3. Lifestyles and perspectives - America's attitude towards various social issues (abortion, homosexuality, co-habitation, political correctness, satisfaction with life, definitions of success, etc.).

    4. What we can do as our nation stands at the crossroads that many nations have in the past and will in the future. Barna has 4 suggestions for addressing this problem - large part of the solution suggests we who are true believers in Jesus Christ must be broken of our natural selfishness and turn to Him (sounds just like 2 Chronicles 7:14!).

    As with other Barna titles, "America At The Crossroads" contains helpful insights, interesting data and conclusions, and has a decidedly biblical viewpoint. Read and heed. I was given a review copy by Baker Books in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    I have often turned to the Barna Organization for insights on trends in culture. They provide snapshots of what our country thinks and does regarding various aspects of life and culture. Barnas most recent research is now compiled in book form in America At The Crossroads: Explosive trends shaping Americas future and what you can do about it.

    The focus of the book is on helping Christ followers realize that discovering and understanding cultural trends is both an assignment and a gift from God. Like the men of Issachar (1 Chronicles 12:32), the key is not to simply know what is coming but to determine how to most intelligently and strategically respond to emerging circumstances.

    Barna divides his book into four parts. Each part contains several chapters. Each chapter follows a similar formata Summary of the research, Key Facts which includes charts and bullet points of the findings, and then an Outlook and Interpretation where he explains the significance of details. Part 1 discusses Faith and Spirituality. Part 2 looks at Government and Politics. Part 3 focuses on Lifestyles and Perspectives. Part 4 is on Standing at the Crossroads where he lays out an action plan of how we should respond.

    The author is candid is admitting that the research does not paint a pretty or uplifting picture. For those of us who aspire to be Christlike, it is outright embarrassing and heartbreaking. That being said, Barna believes that our nation can be restored, but only by God.

    So, the initial course of action we must takeour emphasis on commitment and wisdom-driven actionmust be to ascertain Gods unique vision for us, to understand how that intersects His vision for His people, and to allow the Lord to transform us into the people He made us to be, people who will transform society by loving other people into His presence and ways.

    Like all of Barnas work, the book is insightful and thought provoking. You wont agree with all of his conclusions, but he will cause you to think.
