My most recent book, Then. Now. Next.: A biblical vision of the church, the kingdom, and the future, is now available on Amazon in Kindle format. Here’s some of what my friend Len Sweet in the forward to the book.
“Getting ready for the future is a lot like playing the piano. You can’t be ‘ready’ for the future. You just do your best to prepare and then play. Sometimes you’re ready. Sometimes you’re not. The first dice were used to tell the future. There always has been a bit of a gamble to futuring. Either you’re ready for the future, or you’re not.
“David McDonald has written a stirring manifesto for the future that readies the church to play. ‘Nothing ages as fast as the future’ writes Polish science fiction writer Stanislaw Lem (1921-2006). But Proverbs 31.25 assures us that the virtuous and valiant can ‘laugh at the future’ and leave the church ‘full of futurity.’ You too will be ‘full of futurity’ after reading. McDonald’s manifesto.”
