Product Description

In George Barna's provocative new book he identifies seven major "faith tribes" he believes most affect and influence the direction of America's economy, politics and moral values. The Seven Faith Tribes documents who they are, what they are passionate about, what they believe, how they vote and why it matters. Most importantly, Barna details their potential to change America. Through in-depth study of these "tribes" (Captive Christians, Casual Christians, Jews, Mormons, Pantheists, Muslims & Skeptics) Barna research has identified potential strategies that, if employed by these groups, could facilitate the healing and restoration of American culture, and cultures all across the globe. A masterful analysis!

Publisher's Description

In this groundbreaking book, now available in softcover, acclaimed researcher and author George Barna identifies, describes, and analyzes seven major “faith tribes” in America—documenting who they are, what they believe, how they vote, and what they are passionate about. Barna provides helpful insight into how these groups influence our economy, politics, and values—and what their potential is to change America. Through his in-depth study of all seven tribes, Barna has identified potential strategies that faith tribes—if they choose to—could employ to facilitate healing and restoration in American culture, and cultures across the world.

Publisher's Weekly

America is careening down a slippery slope of narcissism and materialism, argues Barna, a renowned Christian pollster and author of more than 40 books. Rising divorce rates, lukewarm religious faith, pervasive moral relativism, and “the substitution of alternative worldviews for the traditional Judeo-Christian version” have all contributed to the nation’s self-destruction. While the standard-issue declension narrative that occupies Barna’s rather dreadful opening chapters isn’t very promising, readers can find their own suggestive nuggets in the body of the book, where his research is on display. Drawing on a composite of his organization’s statistical surveys, he groups Americans into seven basic faith “tribes” to explore their role in the nation’s decline and possible renaissance. Scholars of religion will have many quibbles with the groupings into seven rough tribes (non-theistic Buddhists are bundled with the “pantheists,” for example, and Barna seems to conflate the Nation of Islam with mainstream Islam). Many readers will disagree with the sweeping final chapters on where America should go from here, but even critics will find that Barna’s research yields fascinating tidbits. As such, it is a useful snapshot of America’s religiosity—or lack thereof. (May) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
