George Barna

$28.99

Hardback
World-renowned pollster George Barna has the numbers, and they indicate a revolution is already taking place within the Church--one that will impact every believer in America. Committed, born-again Christians are exiting the established church in massive numbers. Why are they leaving? Where are they going? And what does this mean for the future of the Church? Using years' worth of research data, and adhering to an unwavering biblical perspective, Barna predicts how this revolution will impact the organized church, how Christ's body of believers should react, and how individuals who are considering leaving (or those who have already left) can respond. For leaders working for positive change in the church and for believers struggling to find a spiritual community and worship experience that resonates, Revolution is here. Are you ready?

1 stars By Mark Tapping, Jun 04 2010
It became the first book I ever literally threw across the room and into the trash can. While the church has benefitted much from the Barna Research Group, the church got a big hit with this one. Not only would I suggest it is a bad read, I would sadly say I think it is a dangerous read. Unless you are very sure of what you believe, and are grounded firmly in the Word of God... you should not read this book. I asked a certain friend not to read this book. He didn't listen. A year later he was still struggling with his faith.

I had previously determined to never write a negative review (rather stay silent and point out the good books)... yet this book is so unhelpful, I feel it necessary to at least say 'DANGER'. Polls have a place, but not to replace truth. The Bible should always be what determines truth for the Christian.
