The problem, argues Powley, lies in the things we do without thinking. Advertisers, entertainers, and even our friends have long since learned our weak spots. By targeting our basic human desires, such as the need to be accepted or loved, they have taught us to think in certain patterns. The book draws attention to these tricks, so we can begin to combat our subconscious mindset of materialism. It concludes with a series of reflections to continue supporting the reader to live a more fulfilling, authentic life.
Having studied theology at Oxford and human behavior through Breathe, his Christian network for simpler living, Powley speaks with authority and offers numerous first-hand accounts. The book mixes arguments from both Christian and secular worlds to provide emotional and spiritual renewal even to receptive non-believers. Though the tone is often humorous and never preachy, Powley manages to convict readers with the same force as a powerful sermon. This is especially true when it comes to the modern application of stories such as the rich, young man in Luke 18 who went away from Jesus sad "because he had great wealth."Powley muses, "Now most of the commentary I've heard on these verses goes something like this: The rich young man had a particular problem with money. That's why Jesus asked him to give it up If he'd loved cheeseburgers too much, Jesus would have prescribed a vegan diet. Money was his problem, but it may not be our problem. So the words probably don't apply to us Hmmm. Nice try ."
Unlike some books, which promise unrealistic goals, Consumer Detox speaks frankly about the issues. There are practical, helpful instructions on ways to simplify and improve the quality of your life that promise neither too little, nor too much. The books audience is young adults, so it also deals briefly with more serious issues such as pornography and addiction, but is an invaluable resource for parents looking to protect and educate their children on the dangers of consumerism. From young teenagers to retirees, Mark Powleys Consumer Detox will be worth every moment spent reading it. Ryan Dennison, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
