Emerging Order: God in the Age of Scarcity (with Ted Howard)
Ballantine Books, 1979
"I have no hesitance in urging all who seek to understand the limits and the possibilities of both traditional liberalism and traditional conservatism to read and ponder this exciting book. Jeremy Rifkin not only traces the historical relationship between the economic order and spiritual faith; he also gives us the outline of the social order now emerging."
— Senator George McGovern
"The Emerging Order. . . provides a blueprint for the economic and spiritual challenges facing the Christian community in the remainder of this century. He dramatically illuminates the wayward self-destructive course in modem society's values and points to the potential saving role that can be played by people of faith. . . . An exciting, fascinating book; it knocked me over."
— Senator Mark Hatfield
"The Emerging Order promises to be, in my view, one of the most discussed books in the religious world this year. 'It could become, and I hope will be, a watershed book for the evangelical community."
— Wes Michaelson, Editor, Sojourners
"This is one of the most stimulating books I have read in recent years. My prediction is that it will be a stimulus for many other books that will be written in the years immediately ahead on the decline of our Western way of life and the possible shape of things to come."
— T.B. Matson
