Product Description

These 25 brief, thoughtful meditations by Paul Escamilla are organized in five topics: The Good Book, The Good Life, the Good Work, The Good Society, and The Good Earth. Whether read privately or with a group, these probing essays invite rather than indict the reader---making the "life of enough" seem not only possible but a natural next step in our lives as Christians. A gifted writer, Escamilla leads the reader to anticipate both physical and spiritual relief from saturation and excess. Together the author and the reader search for the secret of escaping the lifestyle and attitudes of "a weighed-down world." A study guide includes questions for reflection or discussion.

An excerpt from the Circuit Rider review: "This is a helpful little book. Clergy and laity will find in it much to consider. In a highly consumerist culture, there is a great deal to examine as persons ask questions about what constitutes having 'enough': How much is enough? How do we find rest and peace for anxious hearts? How do we discover a depth of being in a society always bent on 'doing' and 'having' more? For persons who are searching and exploring what the next step in the journey of faith is, this book will provide an instructive pathway to growth by someone who has also "been there and done that." And what they will receive is not an indicting finger but a gentle and persuasive hand." (Click here to read the entire review.)

    This is one of the most insightful, moving books I've read on the topic of transforming our culture's outlook on what makes life good and whole. Every so often I have a "Hmm, wow," moment that makes me reevaluate my current paradigm. I'd say I average one or two of those moments per year. I've been reading this book for three hours and already have had four of them. Open your mind and heart, read the book, and have a "Hmm, wow," moment.

    Our Women's group has been reading this book and we are very disappointed in it. It is diffucult to read, it wanders and many chapters just seem to be written to fill the page.
