George Barna isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.

The two previous articles on mastering the seventh stop on the journey to wholeness – i.e., allowing God to break us of our infatuation with sin, self, and society – addressed why we should think of brokenness as a positive event rather than something to be avoided. As an important albeit difficult stop on the journey, brokenness enables us to get beyond ourselves and recognize our need for God...

“Our studies consistently show a large majority of people leave their church’s service without feeling as though they have connected with God. If those who regularly attend depart with such disappointment and confusion, what must it be like for those who are new to the church adventure?”
George Barna, Churchless: Understanding Today's Unchurched and How to Connect with Them

“After all, merely believing that Jesus is God, and that He lived on earth and exists today is not enough; the Bible tells us that even Satan believes those things. Saying you’ve made a commitment to Christ and living in ways that demonstrate that commitment are two different realities.

George Barna
