Changing Society: A Social and Spiritual Vision for the Year 2020 and Beyond addresses the five traditional social institutions (marriage and family, religion, education, politics, and economics) as well as other important social institutions (health care, race, ethnicity, and technology). The editor and contributors provide keen social insights as they consider the current dynamics as well as the historical and future issues of each of these social institutions. This book is unique in that each of the writers approaches their topic from vast professional expertise and from great spiritual awareness (that is, such things as values, essence, meaning, and purpose). With the intention of focus and clarity and by projecting into the year 2020, one can appreciate how Vision 2020 as part of the book's title captures a double entendre.

About the Author:

Robert L. Menz, D.Min., is the author of two other books and is adjunct faculty at Edison Community College in Piqua, Ohio. He is also the employee counselor and corporate employee assistance director for Emerson Climate Technologies and director of the Shelby County Chaplaincy Board in Sidney, Ohio.

Review:

This is an impressive, wide-ranging, and encyclopedic work addressing significant areas of the human experience and changes that we are likely to experience, for good or for ill, in the decades ahead. This book is for futurists, but also for the average reader and inquirer who wonders what's in store for us down the road. (Raymond J. Lawrence, D.Min., Episcopal minister, psychotherapist, author, and general secretary for the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy, Ne)

As the year 2020 is fast approaching, it is beneficial to have a thoughtful visionary guide to a rapidly changing societal landscape with all the surprises and shock it implies...Having a handle on discerned trends may yet allow us, as well as hopefully spur us, to gain a degree of essential impact on critical themes and fateful developments that are bound to affect our total well-being nationally and globally. (Israel Zoberman, D.Min., Rabbi, Congregation Beth Chaverim, Virginia Beach, Virginia)

The chapter on healthcare by Dr. Menz is a thought-provoking sojourn into the past, present, and future states of our current healthcare system....it touches on many pressing issues, addressing them from views the current medical establishment might not always consider. His thoughts and ideas are heavily supported by references throughout the piece. Overall, it is very interesting reading. (James K. Frost, M.D., physician, Signature Health and Wellness, Bluffton, South Carolina)

Changing Society reveals some of the real complexities we face in the twenty first century. Readers will be forced to reflect on some of the more contemporary issues, such as marriage, health care, education, race, religion, and politics as these issues affect our lives. (Senator Tom Roberts, Ohio State Senator, Columbus, Ohio)
