What the Critics Say

"Lloyd James narrates this fascinating book, which addresses the problem of people's attempts to find satisfaction in their lives by acquiring more and more things - which, of course, rarely achieves the desired end....James's well-modulated voice reflects the author's passion. His strong, clear delivery creates a convincing presentation. This dynamic audiobook is well worth your time. (AudioFile)
"If everybody in this country could read--and heed--this book, what a difference it would make to the planet; nay to the cosmos." (Madeleine L'Engle)

    "Challenging and provoking"

    In this book, Foster challenges us to view ourselves and our stuff from God's perspective - His people and His stuff. In calling us to the freedom from protecting our possessions, he leads us to live our lives with an open hand.

    He remains ecumenical in his sourcing for this work, much like Celebration of Discpline. Even in this, his "Quaker-ness" comes through, with the beauty of Jesus as teacher.

    A worthy read, and the narrator does a superb job in creating the illusion that the words are his. The hours of listening are much like having a deep, extended conversation with a trusted friend rather than a stilted lecture from a professor.
