It is an amazing truth that we in the West live at a time when almost all of us have more of everything than we need, and possibly on average more than any other generation in history; and yet dissatisfaction abounds. Indeed, the very consumerism that underpins our economies depends precisely upon such dissatisfaction for its dynamic; and such pervades the church as an insidious, lethal but often unnoticed form of worldliness. In this context, it is a great pleasure to recommend this book by Dr. William Barcley, who addresses the issue head on and offers practical, pastoral advice, firmly rooted in the teaching of the Bible.
