"Earth-shaking trends of the 21st century are shaping America's religious future. But spiritual forces can also bend the trends. Every rip of the calendar brings us closer to 2001. Powerful forces that will affect virtually every aspect of your life are already in motion." "Yet most Americans are unaware that they can deflect and direct these massive changes. Award-winning journalist Russell Chandler looks at the power of religion and tells the ordinary person how to get ready for the coming millennium. Now." "In fast-moving style, the author assesses perils ahead in technology, education, media, and the arts; future challenges in medicine and genetics; forecasts for politics and the economy; upcoming upheavals in families, life-styles, and employment; and the surprising shift to non-traditional religions." "Spirituality is one of life's most powerful and pervasive forces. It can even change future events and attitudes. Racing Toward 2001 goes beyond books written by the poll-taker, the market researcher, and the popular generalist who only analyze future trends. Chandler focuses on the practical hope found in cutting-edge models for ministry in the 21st Century: suburban "baby-boomer" churches, charismatic megachurches, mainline social-action churches, inner-city black congregations, ethnic Roman Catholic parishes, and small rural fellowships." "These, plus other innovative groups, frame a promising window facing the approaching millennium." "Racing Toward 2001 draws broadly from some of the best information, resources, and authorities. Chandler personally interviewed more than 75 experts." "In Racing Toward 2001 you will discover the big-league players and who will own the "stadium"; money patterns and how churches will touch your wallet; why government, business, churches will collaborate; health care ahead for your kids and aging parents; techniques to better evaluate TV; and what schooling is best for your child." "This is a benchmark book. It will help you cope with coming global changes and tell you how to harness the forces shaping the Next Age."--BOOK JACKET.
