Our good friend, Sam Norton, has received some excellent reviews for his new book, "Let Us Be Human."
At the Energy Bulletin review by Roy Smith "I would highly recommend this book to anybody seeking to explore the spiritual ramifications of the crises our industrial civilization faces. It is concise and well-written, and possesses the unique strength of being written by one of the few people I am aware of who has an equally solid grounding in Christianity and theology on the one hand and in the issues of resource depletion and the limits to growth on the other."
Jeremy Williams at Make Wealth History "If you move in mainstream Christian circles at all, you’ll know that Norton is swimming against the current here. In my experience at least, the church is no more aware of the growth dilemma than the general culture is. That’s a shame, because churches should be natural hubs for imagining an alternative lifestyle together – that’s pretty much what they’re for. Churches don’t build community, they are community. There’s a vital opportunity there if we can learn to see it, and Let us be Human deserves a bigger audience."
At Amazon.co.uk "In this brilliantly insighful book Sam takes us on a broad brush journey. He highlights the failings of our current culture and the failings of the Church to really engage with it... A definite 'Must Read' for anyone who wishes to be part of the emerging discussion surrounding what it means to be human and Christian in our time."
The Kindle edition of Sam's book, which can be bought through the second widget (UK) or the fourth widget (USA) is so damn cheap it's almost free. Just $4.14 in the USA or £2.63 in the UK.
