Framing the Issues

frames Zondervan and Barna Group have teamed up to put out Frames, a group of nine (promised as Season One) slim, pocket-sized books that pack a punch—cultural analysis, practical suggestions, and spiritual encouragement on everything from how do stay sane in the digital age to multi-careering; from why the church still matters to finding our place in a violent-friendly culture; from foster care to female identity. Each book features a "frame" in which the topic is introduced by one or more authors, and a "re/frame" by a different author giving a different perspective.

Authors include familiar names like Andy Crouch, Phyllis Tickle, and Francis Chan as well as folks like Claire Diaz-Ortiz, Jun Young, and Nicole Baker Fulgham.

Each book includes colorful infographics and provocative questions—perfect fodder for a dinner party discussion or small group. On the auxillary DVD (sold separately), Barna Group's David Kinnaman and other authors/speakers explore nine key issues of our time.
