I thought it would be interesting to see several organizations that take George Barna seriously and use The Barna Group’s research or books as authority.
The Awana store offers George Barna’s book: Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions. http://store.awana.org/AwanaItemMain.aspx?itemId=019001296
Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project®
The Truth Project quotes from: The Barna Update, “A Biblical Worldview Has a Radical Effect on a Person’s Life,” December 1, 2003. TTP uses Barna’s information to validate the need of their 12 DVDs which the site claims will “counter this slide within the body of Christ.” (See my first post, Where is Truth?)
George Barna is one of the speakers at a Rethink Conference hosted by Schuller at his Crystal Cathedral, Jan. 17-18, 2008.
We don’t need Transformation Books, Truth Project DVDs, or Rethink Conferences.
We just need THE BOOK
[Jesus said] “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”—John 6:63
“…they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”—Act 17:11
