Major Trends Ten Years On

Steve Addison is talking with Howard Synder about the ten major trends he wrote about in 1986, including:

1. The coming of online global society (Internet, etc.)

2. Economic globalization

3. The feminist revolution

4. Environment at risk—global warming, species depletion, water, etc.

5. The genetics and quantum physics revolutions (DNA, superstrings)

6. Virtual reality and artificial intelligence

7. Cultural and economic decline of the U.S.

8. Global culture vs. global clash of civilizations

More on the trends here.

Howard’s early book called Radical Renewal: The Problem of Wineskins made a huge impact on the way I viewed church and has contributed to my own “deep ecclesiology”

Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
