A powerful prophetic vision that screams hope in the face of modern day fatalism. Within these pages we are educated about our world, challenged to change it and given the tools and inspiration to do so. -- Phil Wall, The Salvation Army
An important book about our globalized society and the consumer values which drive it. This is essential reading for all western Christians committed to shaping their lifestyle according to the teaching of Christ. -- Graham Clay, Ridley College, Cambridge
An intriguing book that shows secularism to be a lot deeper than most of us have thought. ... Sine forces us to confront our hidden accommodations to modernity and invites us to join his conspiracy for non-dualistic discipleship. -- Peter C. Moore, president, Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry
Because Tom Sine thinks carefully about our past and our future, we can take seriously what he says about our present.

Foster, author, Celebration of Discipline and Streams of Living Water

A guidebook for imaginative discipleship, equipping Christians for the new millennium. -- Wesley Granberg-Michaelson, general secretary, Reformed Church in America
In the meltdown to the new millennium this is a must read for all who care about the future of the church and world. A profoundly challenging book. -- Roger and Faith Forster, Ichthus Christian Fellowship
Many of us consider Tom Sine as one of the outstanding futurists of this generation. This book may be his very best.

He presents some practical potential solutions which every one of use should prayerfully consider. -- Paul Cedar, chairman, Mission America
This book is a must read for any Christian leader who is determined to face tomorrows challenges equipped for the task. As one who spends a lot of time trying to peer into the future, I cannot commend this book more highly. -- Richard Kew, director, Anglican Forum for the Future
Tom Sine cuts through corporate one-world propaganda to reveal the dark side of economic globalization and asserts with vigor that the American Dream is no substitute for the mission that Jesus gave to the church. -- Stephen A. Hayner, president, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA
