If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor)the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. Therein lies our dilemma.

Moses does not offer any quick fixes in living on less. But she does offer a calling to examine how we consume. What we consume affects our brothers and sisters. The chocolate we eat, the clothes we wear, the movies we see. I appreciate the calling for Christians to take notice on how we consume. Moses herself has shared her journey to become more aware and the changes she has made along the way. Being a progressive lefty is quite evident in her testimony and I am afraid does not get to the root of the problem. Take poverty for example. There are many reasons for poverty in our country from mental illness, the lack of father leadership, to name a few. Her call for $15.00 wages does not fix the problem of poverty. If anything, it could create new problems.

There were other issues that I took as not solving the problem but creating another because it does deal with the real problem. The issue of our heart. The finished work of Christ and the not yet. Politically packed and offers little. I would not recommend.

A Special Thank you to Westminster John Knox Press and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
