Remix Book Review on Futureville by Skye Jethani
Will the future be filled with optimism and utopia or pessimistic destruction? Often times, these are the only two options we give ourselves for the future of the United States and the world. However, the engaging book Futureville by Skye Jethani offers up a different view of the future, one based in the Bible. In short, he proposes Futureville. This is the future collision of Heaven and Earth seen in Revelation 21. This view of the future is filled with life, love, adventure, and worship. Ultimately, this view should change the way that each of us engage the world currently, because if one is living for that future we will live transformed and purpose filled lives according to Skye. I found this book to be awesome! It was inspiring, challenging, and an adventure to read. Within it, I learned about everything from the 1939 Worlds Fair to the value of each vocation that we take up in life. The author convinced me to think differently about how I am living today, and to consider a life filled with purpose. This book offers up a biblical view that suggests Christianity should not be represented as simply “republican conservatism” but should embrace artists, doctors, business owners, and janitors because that is what Jesus would do. I am excited to share this book, and if you want to be a part of the amazing future to come right now then pick this book up now!
