The Weekly Hit List: October 5, 2012

Living into Focus by Arthur Boers was reviewed in the September/October 2012 issue of Faith Today.

“The book finds its own pleasant balance between theory and practical realities, offering tips for managing technology as basic and important as the use of email to resolve conflict. . .; reclaiming Sabbath; questioning how busy, busy, busy we are and what we can do about it.

“This is a significant and readable book for any person of faith wanting to at least consider we might actually be servants of technology, instead of the other way around.”
