The Weekly Hit List: March 2, 2012

Arthur Boers’ Living Into Focus: Choosing What Matters in an Age of Distractions was reviewed in the Englewood Review of Books.

They said:

“Boers takes a balanced look at technology, recommending not technological asceticism, but a critical look at how technology affects our attention, relationships, and time, our ability to place limits on our use and our possible addiction, and the way technology keeps us from being connected to our neighborhoods and environment. Here, again, Boers takes a practice-centered view, asking us to examine the consequences of our current practices and recommends alternative practices, such as the spiritual practice of consciousness examen and reclaiming sabbath, to counteract our distracting practices.”
