(quoted from the book's description)
“Less of Moreexposes the American pursuit of more for what truly is: an attempt to satisfy our souls with the temporary instead of the eternal. Pastor and writer Chris Nye invites us to consider what a full and abundant life looks like apart form money, status, and power. He exposes the lies inherent in our obsession with growth, fame, and wealth, and calls us to a countercultural life marked by connection, obscurity, vulnerability, and generosity.”
A common phrase I hear is that, “things aren’t the way they use to be” or “it wasn’t like this when we were kids.” Two phrases rooted in the idea that someone else is the problem. Two phrases that shift the blame and focus onto someone other than ourselves. Chris Nye writes this book with the point that these problems we face are not new. The problems of this world have faced humanity since the beginning. Problems of wealth, power, and the need for more and more. The book is filled with insight that made me reshape views on ministry, business, and how I see success. This is a book that will be on my mind for a long time. I hope you give it a chance!
Thank you to Chris Nye and Baker Books for the chance to read and review this book.

The ten commandments… not the ten suggestions or the list of ten you should try these. Often Christians today forget these rules or they go too far the other way and only rely on the rules rather than grace. I am one of the people who generally forget the ten commands. I could try and name a few and would probably get close but that’s only because of going to church and Bible college not because I think about them daily. But I did recently see a photo of the list and one of the commands caught my eye.
