This book was born from a keen sense of urgency about the state of society and the future of our planet.
For most people, those words conjure up worrisome images of war, poverty, environmental degradation.
Many people believe that civilization is descending to new depths and the very existence of life on Earth is at risk. With good reason. We can find ample evidence that we’re making a mess of things.
Against such a backdrop, how can anyone honestly believe the future might turn out well?
My sense of urgency springs from an entirely different source. Surprising as it may sound, I believe humanity is poised to ascend to new heights — and indeed has already begun to do so, in ways often invisible to our view.
How can we see the world as vibrant, vital, and filled with promise? Join me to discover encouraging real-life answers and experience a new kind of urgency, founded on confidence and hope.
