To be honest, I zoned out while listening to quite a bit of this book. It wasn’t even the author’s writing style or the subject matter of consumerism that did it. It was the overwhelming Christian bent to everything he said.
Now, I have to say … looking back, I now see the phrase “By contrast, Jesus modeled a life of joyful limitation” in the publisher’s description in a different light. I saw it at the time when I picked the book, but because it was only the one line, and it didn’t leak out into the rest of the description, I assumed that maybe the author would mention Jesus as an example and that would kind of be the end of it. But no, that’s definitely not the case.
