Barna and Barton: America is Doomed If We Don't Do This

U.S. Capitol

The United States became a unique, prosperous and admired nation because of its faith in God and the willingness of the people to abide by God's standards and principles. Over time, however, the urge to glorify oneself rather than God has seriously eroded the strength and potential of the nation.

Based on shocking new research and compelling interviews, FrontLine's newly released book, U-Turn, combines George Barna's and David Barton's unique insights and cultural analysis to demonstrate the moral and spiritual underpinnings that made the United States great, its decline over the past forty years and a detailed road map for the future.

U-Turn examines current cultural trends and historical patterns to reveal that America cannot sustain its strength if it remains on its current path.

"Unless we invite God to be at the center of our process and operate in strict accordance with His principles, we are doomed to continue our downward slide," Barna and Barton write. "Because He has proven Himself to be a merciful ruler, though, if we will humble ourselves before Him, there is hope. U-Turn will describe the radical action Americans must take in partnership with God to restore the nation."

Barna is the executive director of the American Culture & Faith Institute. He is also the founder of The Barna Group and the best-selling author of 49 books. He has filled executive roles in politics, marketing, advertising, media development, research and ministry. Hailed as "the most quoted person in the Christian church today," he has sold more research-based books related to matters of faith than any author in American history.

Barton is the founder and president of WallBuilders, a national pro-family organization that presents America's forgotten history and heroes. Named as one of America's twenty-five most influential evangelicals by TIME, he is the author of numerous best-selling books.

The authors provide a unique view of the moral and spiritual condition of Americans and provide specific insights into how Americans can turn the nation around by focusing on the restoration of the family, the restoration of the Christian church and the future activity of our government
