"From the Publisher:" EarthCurrents by Howard A. Snyder Discusses from a Christian perspective eight trends that are bringing about a global revolution that will alter the shape of human life across the planet.
The future will bring amazing shifts in global culture, ecological science, world economics, on-line technology, and philosophy. What views will emerge or fail on a globe where the next generation is experimenting with virtual reality and gene splicing? Snyder evaluates such change in terms of shifting philosophical and religious beliefs. Key Features: * Written by a best-selling author with a high degree of recognition in the CBA and ABA markets. * Focuses on global trends rather than N. American culture. * Taps into growing interest in global issues--economy, ecology, politics. Key Benefits: * Takes seriously the emerging reality that we live in a global (not national) society. * Forecasts some of the impact globalization will have on our lives in the coming decades. * Heightens awareness of shifting worldviews, and how these paradigmatic shifts in self-understanding may alter the shape of our families and other social institutions ( including our churches.)
Howard Snyder is Professor of the History and Theology of Mission at Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, KY.
