Book Review of Futurecast by George Barna

Today I have two book reviews. One is for a fiction book and this one is for a non-fiction book. I found this one quite interesting. I love doing research and that is what this one is all about! Futurecast has a wonderful title and even more wonderful information!!
The world and culture are changing at a pace beyond anything ever seen in history. But where will all these changes lead? What’s in store for our government, economy, families, and churches? Between the Internet and other news media, we’re getting a lot of opinions, but the challenge is finding accurate facts that give us a real sense of what’s happening—and what’s likely to come. In Futurecast, bestselling author and renowned researcher George Barna presents a timely look at the world we’re creating every day, and offers solid data to show the path our country is on and the emerging trends that will shape our world—and change each of our lives.

George Barna is known by many for the surveys they do. This one takes the answers given by the American people and then takes a look at our future and what it holds. I have read many other books written by Mr. Barna and they were very intriguing so I knew I would love this one.

Barna goes through many different areas of the American life and lifestyle including our internet, media, etc. I found these quite interesting as I have seen changes in my life from the impact of media. I don't want to give too much information out but it was amazing how things have changed.

The thing I liked most was how he gave ideas in the back for how to change things in the future. We don't have to let things just go with the flow! We can change some things. I don't think it will be anything major but some minor changes are what can be looked for. This book really goes to show how our society has changed and what we can do about it.

Overall I loved this book. It isn't just about information, but what we can do to change it. I would suggest this book for anyone who is interested in where we are heading as a nation. This book is available from the publisher, Tyndale House Publishing, or from Amazon.

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
