The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own

Joshua Becker . Waterbrook, $17.99 (240p) ISBN 978-1-60142-796-0
Future generations may well view the present day in the U.S. as an era of acquisition, Becker writes, in which new cars and new electronic devices are pursued with a passion that can leave the purchaser with a hollow sense of unfulfillment. In this delightful little book, Becker considers the movement known as voluntary simplicity—an effort to convince our consumerist society to scale down and find ways to be happier with fewer possessions—and takes it a step further, incorporating Christian spirituality into minimalism: a way of shedding the excess in our lives and "finding freedom to pursue the things that matter most to you." Friends, family, and faith all factor into his unique approach to getting rid of the possessions that weigh one down, opening new avenues of meaningful exploration into the deeper, more sacred depths of being. With action plans, lists, and appeals to the reader's quiet nature, Becker successfully presents a well-rounded argument that a journey toward minimalism is possible and even enjoyable. Any Christian seeking the path of material simplicity will find this volume both valuable and informative. (May)
