"In today's high-speed culture, there's a prevailing sense that we are busier than ever before and that the pace of life is too rushed. Most of us can relate to the feeling of having too much to do and not enough time for the people and things we value most. We feel fragmented, overwhelmed by busyness and the tyranny of gadgets.Veteran pastor and teacher Arthur Boers offers a critical look at the isolating effects of modern life that have eroded the centralizing, focusing activities that people used to do together. He suggests ways to make our lives healthier and more rewarding by presenting specific individual and communal practices that help us focus on what really matters. These practices--such as shared meals, gardening, hospitality, walking, prayer, and reading aloud--bring our lives into focus and build community. The book includes questions for discernment and application"--Publisher description.… (mais)

Meh..... it's all been said before, and better. There were too many personal stories, and I didn't feel at all inspired by his experiences or his writing. It's an important topic - I really wanted to learn something but this book didn't move me to learn or to change. ( )

Arthur Boers is a college professor who in this volume challenges Christians to spend a little less time with technology. Although in some places he does mention that doing so provides more time for prayer and Bible study, he hasn't really developed that thought as fully as he could have. He does, however, develop the additional time to spend with family, mainly through discussions of Amish life. Here again, in a book published by a Christian publisher, I would have expected more Biblical references in making his point. I agree with much of what the author has to say about the way that technology has caused us to lose our focus on the things that matter and has made us spend far too much time in our jobs and in communicating in non-face-to-face situations; however, nothing he has really said in the book is really unique. It is mainly a rehash of the research of others. Since the book is not preachy, I think the book is a good fit for any person who is interested in simplifying their life, but it is likely to appeal mostly to an Evangelical lay audience interested in reducing stress in their lives caused by technology.
