Reviews - What do customers think about Setting Down Roots: Leaving Behind the Tumbleweed Life?
quick read, but full of stuff we all need to hear Aug 14, 2005
Rootlessness & Disconnectedness. This is how our society is. We're always chasing after the next best thing, constantly moving from place to place, and we're so wiped out from our jobs & commuting that we spend our free time in isolation. But there is a rising discontent in this way of life. People are once again realizing the importance of a connection to land, a recognition of one's heritage, a wider view of family, & most of all, a place within a community. Eddie Hilburn thoroughly explains how suburbanization and technology has only made people grow apart, and shares some great ideas about how we can connect with God, our families, our churches, and neighborhoods. I'm so glad I read this book; it gave form to thoughts in my heart that have been growing for quite some time. Enjoy.
