Seven Faith Tribes book review

This book was better than I expected.

Barna does a great job outlining the 7 basic faith tribes in America and then helping us get a better picture of what they're like. I thought he'd stop there but he doesn't.

Barna then outlines his ideas for how we can impact America by focusing on the "Shared values" of these groups (which includes everyone from atheists to Muslims).

His premise is that it's going to take all of us to turn America around.

I learned a lot about the adult population of America from this book. While I'm not sure how on board I am with his premise and reason for writing the book, I appreciate his passion and vision for a better America and how the church (and I) can be a part of loving people
