In an age of conspicuous consumption, where children worry more about their clothes than their grades, the world is being drained of its natural resources and every universal temptation is dangled in front of us, is it possible to be content?
In Enough, Will & Lisa Samson address the idea of finding contentment in this age of excess. With a casual, accessible writing style, the Samsons discuss consumerism, contentment as a Christian discipline and the notion of stewarding our resources. In four sections, they outline the ideas that drive a consumerist mindset; the effects those ideas have on ourselves, our communities and the earth; conclusions about the situation: and practical solutions for negotiating everyday life once we understand that our abundant God is, in fact, enough.
Lisa Samson is an award-winning author who has written over twenty novels; her most recent, Quaker Summer, received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly. Will Samson is a PhD candidate in sociology at the University of Kentucky, where he is working on research in the areas of sustainability and Christian community.
The Samsons live with their three children in Lexington, Kentucky as part of Communality, an international Christian community dedicated to living out the call of the gospel in tangible ways
