Most of us live a life of unprecedented abundance. No matter what our income level, walls of security and distraction inevitably insulate us from the poor or anyone else who might threaten our comfortable life. Yet despite our trappings of wealth--or perhaps because of them--we continue to experience a spiritual hunger for something deeper and more meaningful.
In a surprising solution to that hunger, Jesus invites us to utilize our wealth and our talents to create Kingdom relationships, beginning right in our own communities. To tear down the walls, both literal and cultural, separating God's children in our neighborhoods and across the globe. To experience a life of joy and fulfillment. In Junkyard Wisdom, Roy Goble shares what's waiting for us on the other side of complacency: an abundance we can only reach together.

God calls us all to not conform to the patterns of this world. But nonconformity doesnt mean uniformity . Thats why I like Roy Goble and his book. I doubt Roys going to move into a row house in North Philly with usthough if you want to, Roy, give me a buzz!but Roys working out his salvation with fear and trembling just like the rest of us. At the end of the day, I am not interested in people being more like me, but more like Jesus.
Finally! Now there is a way for wealthy Christians to participate in the vital work of reconciliation, beyond guilt or shame! In this ground-breaking book, Roy Goble addresses the elephant in the room and offers a better way forward through mutual and life-giving relationships with the poor. This book is a win-win for everybody and its long overdue. I highly recommend it.
Roy Goble could easily be sipping wine and enjoying the good life. In some ways he does. But not at the expense of stewarding well the opportunities hes been given. I research and write about global issues and cultural intelligence. Roy lives it. And that comes through in the pages of Junkyard Wisdom. Funny, challenging, and grace-filled are just a few words that describe whats here. Enjoy and be inspired.
Roy Gobles clear and passionate voice comes through the pages in a genuine and challenging way as he peels back the protective coats surrounding his own vulnerabilities. His openness to describing his own personal flaws allows us to consider more fully the planks in our own eyes. The result is liberating, creating an environment of true and honest self reflection. Junkyard Wisdom is written in Roys easy-to-read, down-home stylebut make no mistake, the stories will leave you with big ideas to ponder and hopefully pursue."
Powerful and compelling, this is much more than a book associated with ones spiritual journey or a discussion of what one should or shouldnt do with ones life. Junkyard Wisdom centers on the struggle surrounding created wealth and its use in addressing the plight of the poor and underserved. Using real-life expressions and easy-to-understand language and humor, Roy Goble describes the conflicts inherent with wealth for followers of Jesus, and he poses important questions. A masterful storyteller and deep thinker, Goble has crafted a beautiful and provocative read, and I highly recommend Junkyard Wisdom as immensely practical and immediately helpful.
