Remember the Future is a result of years of hands-on consulting work with struggling congregations by Jerry Keucher, who served on the staff of the Diocese of New York for 13 years. Keucher notes that many, if not most, congregations in mainline churches have declined in the past forty years and that this shrinkage in numbers "has deeply affected the psyches" of congregational leaders. Using a positive tone and attitude to help congregations imagine health instead of decline, Keucher offers clear, step-by-step methods and advice on analyzing and managing all aspects of congregational assets. Resources intended to make it easier to implement the recommendations in Remember the Future area available for free download at churchpublishing.org.

The people who shaped America's public-broadcasting system in the early 1970s believed that NPR should treat its listeners as citizens and not as consumers. NPR would offer programming that promoted empowerment and social change, appeal to the broad spectrum of U.S. society, and serve communities traditionally ignored by commercial broadcasting. This book tells the story of how NPR has tried to embody these ideals and the extent to which the network has reached its goals. Michael P. McCauley describes NPR's evolution from virtual obscurity when it was riddled with difficulties - political battles, unseasoned leadership, funding problems - to a first-rate broadcast organization. McCauley's work draws on a wealth of primary sources, including dozens of interviews with people who have been central to the NPR story. He examines various internal debates about the direction of NPR and the content of its programming. McCauley also places the development of NPR within the historical context of the wider U.S. radio industry, the ideological and political conflicts of postwar America, and contemporary debates about the ways in which mass media can better serve the citizens of a democracy.
