Want to see the future? It’s brighter than you think. What we believe about tomorrow determines how we live today. As Christians debate how to faithfully engage with our rapidly changing world, our vision of the future has never been more important.
That is why author Skye Jethani has crafted Futureville: Discover Your Purpose for Today by Reimagining Tomorrow, due for release January 14, 2014. Throughout the pages of this unique book, Jethani offers readers a vision-shifting glimpse of the world of tomorrow by revealing how scripture can transform every person’s work with a sense of purpose and dignity right now.
“This book is not about the future. It’s about the present. It is about determining what sort of life is truly meaningful,” writes Jethani. “It is about rethinking the way we relate to the world and our purpose within it.”
The future is an essential part of the Christian faith. When believers see the future correctly it not only allows us to transcend our circumstances, but it also shapes how we live in the present.
Futureville provides readers with biblical answers to questions like: How should Christians relate to the world? What is our responsibility to our communities? How can we make sure our worldly work, hobbies, and service offer eternal value to God’s kingdom?
At a time when young adults are less interested in the church and a culture desperate for meaning and hope constantly dismisses the Christian message, Futureville offers an invigorating call to cultivate the beauty, order, and abundance that reflects vision of God for our world.
The present is defined by the future. It’s time to start re-imagining tomorrow, before it’s too late.
