The evening news is filled with bloodshed and war. Poverty, pandemics, and injustice appear to be overwhelming the world. Yet there is more to this story.
In his controversial new book, “Why You’ve Been Duped Into Believing That The World is Getting Worse,” J.D. King recounts statistics that contradict popular narratives. Drawing from the New York Times, Washington Post, and other leading authorities, King recounts something unexpected.
Beneath the social turmoil and political controversy, things are actually getting better. King contends, “Restrictions attributed to race, gender, and social class are not as rigid as they once were. The marginalized and impoverished are finding a seat at the table. Hope is rising, and people are discovering their reason for existence. Spiritual fervor is riding high.”
Despite documented advances, a faulty sense of doom continues to grip conservatives and people of faith. It’s regrettable that multitudes gravitate toward bad news. Our hard-wired pessimism and guilty self-flagellation obscure progress. It is time to re-envision the hope of the gospel.

Jesus commanded us not to worry about tomorrow, yet I meet so many Christians who are terrified about where our world is headed. Paul said to “be joyful always” and “never stop giving thanks,” yet I continually see a misunderstanding of the world’s condition rob Christians of their joy, while the only future thing they’re thankful for is that one day Jesus will rescue them out of it. How sad this is when we realize it’s completely unnecessary! Contrary to what the ratings-driven media will tell you (remember, fear sells), J.D. King lays out a brilliant, scholarly case for the gradual improvement of our world (and most importantly, the Gospel-mechanism behind it all). You’re living at the greatest time in history, and those who embrace the worry-free joy and gratitude available in Christ can be part of this world-improving family called ‘the Church.’ The Media may have duped us, but this book will set the record straight. Read it, and start changing the world.
