Product Description

All our daily choices have an impact on the earth and the people around us: choices about where we shop, what we eat, what we give away. But can we really do anything to help? Can we find joy in our own lives when there is so much pain in the world? Sorting out the answers gets overwhelming and complicated very quickly.

With a blend of practical reflection and insight on topics from guilt to delight, More than Enough goes beyond a call to gratitude and generosity and invites the reader to a new way of life, one that is grounded in the hope and grace of God.

Publisher's Description

Ever look around your life and feel overwhelmed with gratitude for everything you have? Sure, nothing is perfect, but if you have a safe place to live, food on the table, and clothes to wear, the reality is that life is pretty good. That’s not true for many people in the world, and you may wonder, “How do we live in a way that honors God and shows gratitude for the good life we are living in the midst of a world full of pain and brokenness?”

All our daily choices have an impact on the earth and the people around us: choices about where we shop, what we eat, what we give away.… But can we really do anything to help? Can we find joy in our own lives when there is so much pain in the world? Sorting out the answers gets overwhelming and complicated very quickly.

With a blend of practical reflection and insight on topics from guilt to delight, More than Enough goes beyond a call to gratitude and generosity and invites the reader to a new way of life, one that is grounded in the hope and grace of God.

Author Bio

Lee Hull Moses is the Senior Minister of First Christian Church in Greensboro, North Carolina.

She is a regular contributor to the Christian Century print magazine and blog.

Editorial Reviews

“Lee Hull Moses meets us where many of us are at—physically comfortable with our middle-class conveniences but spiritually uncomfortable with our privilege—and gives us a concrete way to think about the ‘good life’ in progressive Christian terms so that we don’t have to live in the painful paradox. Larded with personal stories that make her theology juicy and real, she gives us concrete practices to move into living more gratefully and less guiltily, in greater concert with our faith and with our fellow humans who live with so much less.”

—Molly Baskette, pastor of First Church Somerville and author of Real Good Church

“This book is compassionate yet challenging as it speaks uncomfortable truths about how much we have and where it comes from. At the same time, it speaks transformative truth about who we are without our stuff.”

—Erin Wathen, Senior Pastor, Saint Andrew Christian Church and author of More than Words

“This book is for anyone who’s ready to live more lightly on the earth, but who feels frustrated that the ‘simple life’ seems anything but! Lee Hull Moses is a trustworthy companion on this journey, offering just the right blend of deep wisdom and disarming authenticity.”

—MaryAnn McKibben Dana, author of Sabbath in the Suburbs

“Through the stories of her life, home, and family, Lee Hull Moses searches for the hope, grace, and humor in the everyday that are necessary to make it through these troubling times. A must read for anyone struggling with questions of privilege, consumerism, and how to live faithfully in the midst of excess.”

—Rebecca Todd Peters, Professor of Religious Studies, Elon University and author of Justice in a Global Economy
