About the Author:

Tom Sine (Ph.D., University of Washington) is a futurologist who consults with Christian organizations around the world. He has taught at Fuller Theological Seminary and the University of Washington. His previous books include Wild Hope, The Mustard Seed Conspiracy, and Cease Fire.

Review:

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. Mustard Seed vs. McWorld is an important book about our present and how, with divine creativity, we might envision our future. An important read that we neglect to our peril. -- Richard J. Foster, author, Celebration of Discipline and Streams of Living Water

Beckons us to choose the seeds of the kingdom and shows us how to plant them. This is essential work if the forces of global materialism are to be uprooted with the power of the gospel. 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 communicates from both mind and heart his concerns for the church in the Western world. But he does not merely critique. 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
