Reinventing Life and Faith for the Future.
A guide for helping Christians understand the rapid-fire global changes in society and grasp God’s perspective of working through the seemingly insignificant to effect lasting change.
McWorld uses common symbols such as Nike, Microsoft and McDonald’s. It judges all things by their commercial value, and demands more work, yet delivers less happiness. The author’s task in this book is to provide tools and ideas to Christians who want to dance to the Lord’s tune, not the world’s Change is rapid, subtle, and ubiquitous.
As a culture, we find ourselves working harder and harder to keep abreast of the unending shifts in society, business, education, and values. Christians often are overwhelmed in their efforts to provide the leadership of foresight, vision, and imagination needed in a seemingly unstable world. Tom Sine’s Mustard Seed vs. McWorld emphasizes how Christians can adopt Jesus’ mustard seed perspective by recognizing that God works through the seemingly small and insignificant to bring about lasting change. For McWorld, the ultimate is economic growth and efficiency; from a mustard seed perspective, spiritual and societal transformation are the ultimate goals.
This book is ideally suited for business leaders, ministry organizations, and educational institutions seeking measures for coping with rapid change. College and seminary students, students of cultural trends, and all Christians simply desiring to better understand the future and make a difference will benefit from Mustard Seed vs. McWorld. From the Foreword: You will be grateful for the change this book may bring in you–to be not an apathetic traveler but one who is engaged in a changing world with the changeless message of Christ’s gospel. We are indebted to Tom Sine for giving us this roadmap to show us God’s love and care for this world and to guide us through today’s shifting cultural addictions. –Ravi Zacharias.
