    Living for Jesus and not for stuffWill Samson and I have very similar theological and political backgrounds And while he now considers himself part of the emergent church movement and I have not moved that direction, we have both asked the same question and come up with similar answers Samson has articulated them better than I have and lived them out in aconsistent and substantial way.This book is about living out a life consistent with the New Testament in...

    RATING 2.68 STARSSome good thoughts presented here Love the emphasis on community and the discourse regarding the effects of over consumption on our daily lives physically, communally, and spiritually It felt a little like Samson had too many ideas to reign into an entirely cohesive book, however, and there were plenty of times when the text felt disconnected and almost like I had changed books He would have done well to pick one...

    While I did not agree with all of this book s theology, I found it refreshing as a whole It is a new perspective, I think, from other books on the same subject I appreciated the author s take on why we over consume and the actions he suggests we take to overcome.

    A call to actionThis is a timely read in our culture and for all Christ followers May we all move in this direction and form stronger communities in doing so.

    I often like to read the introduction acknowledgements of books, because it gives a little insight to who the author is and a small preview of things to come In this case, we were encouraged to read the introduction for this very reason,this is unusual in itself because your normally don t see that in a book The thing that I learned was that I really didn t learn anything substantial about the author The one thing that I was not sure of was what this book was about The title says that it is I often like to read the introduction acknowledgements of books, because it gives a little insight to who the author is and a small preview of things to come In this case, we were encouraged to read the introduction for this very reason,this is unusual in itself because your normally don t see that in a book The thing that I learned was that I really didn t learn anything substantial about the author The one thing that I was not sure of was what this book was about The title says that it is about contentment in an age of excess Was this book about the environment, decreasing debt, or Christ centered living He presented lots of facts about our obsession w consumption There was never a clear cut answer given of what can be done He did touch on this subject on pg 150 about our need to consume but, it was too little too late The book only has 167 pages and I have to wait until 150 before you discuss it...

    I didn t find this book to be, well, enough I wanted ain depth analysis, and this is just a brief overview It works well as an introduction, though, and for a vestry or church mission commission, it would be a good short read to discuss and use for making plans to serve those in need.

    I almost gave this book 3 stars, because I think he had some good things to say about the US not being a Christian nation, God not being a capitalist, and the need for less individuality andcommunity However, the overall message I got from the book was a moralistic, we need to act better and do better and just be like Jesus message, with the motivation being the same as the message In other words, no real motivation at all Not that we shouldn t be like Jesus, but I have a real probl I almost gave this book 3 stars, because I think he had some good things to say about the US not being a Christian nation, God not being a capitalist, and the need for less individuality andcommunity However, the overall message I got from the book was a moralistic, we need to act better and do better and just be like Jesus message, with the motivation being the same as the message In other words, no real motivation at all Not that we shouldn t be like Jesus, but I have a real problem with anyone who placesemphasis on Christ as an example than on Christ as Savior, which is what I got from this author There is no reason for me or anyone else to be fulfilled or content, or to change any part of life, without an understanding of God s grace and what the cross accomplished And, in my opinion, de emphasizing that won t result in any meaningful or lasting changes I never...

    I enjoyed this book, and I very much appreciate the practicality of his suggestions to live contentedly with enough and notIt is a big stretch for so many of us to live in intentional community, but Samson helps the reader to search somewhere in the middle to just begin to make change Rather than beating us over the head with how terrible we all are in living so selfishly in this country, Samson states it matter of fact and urgently directs us Christians, especially to where we need to I enjoyed this book, and I very much appreciate the practicality of his suggestions to live contentedly with enough and notIt is a big stretch for so many of us to live in i...

    Interesting book I may try to have some of my Economics students read This is one of those books that shares lots of Anabaptist ideas about the church, community and what it means to be Christian living in the U.S It is a bitintellectual than Living More With Less but it fits well The thing is,it is not written by a Mennonite, but to me it reflects many of the positive parts of being Mennonite Another way of saying this is, I really didn t learn anything new, though I did like the way Interesting book I may try to have some of my Economics students read This is one of those books that shares lots of Anabaptist ideas about the church, community and what it means to be Christian living in the U.S It is a bitintellectual than Living More With Less but it fits well The thing is,it is not written by a Mennonite, but to me it reflects many of the positive parts of being Mennonite Another way of saying this is, I really didn t learn anything new, though I did like the way he put the book tog...
