Consumerism is everywhere. It shapes the way we eat, shop, rest, think, love and believe. We can't escape it, but how can we live well in the midst of it? We are daily seduced by a 250 billion dollar marketing machine. But how often do we consider how this might influence us? The current prevailing orthodoxy is that life should be lived to the max. By contrast, Jesus modeled a life of joyful limitation - free to do; free not to do. Consumer Detox, complete with the Detox Diary in the back of the book with suggestions for each chapter, encouraging stories, and space for writing personal reflections, is for those who want to break out of a lifestyle dominated by consumerism and journey toward a richer, simpler, more generous life. Consumer Detox, written out of Mark Powley's experience of making a change in his own life, is a three part book that will help you break out of the consumer mindset, slow down to enjoy the natural rhythms of life, and live a life of generosity. This book isn't about living a smaller life but having a bigger vision, which can help you become everything you were made to be.

    " Good book. Quick read. Deals with issues greater than consumerism (which is a big issue in itself). Very encouraging, hopeful, and practical. "

    " Good book with some really interesting things to consider in our culture of "stuff". My only complaint would be that there wasnt as much actual practical advice, just more in the abstract regarding what we should aim for. Overall a good eye opening read. "

    " While the author had some good things to say, I found the writing style very hard to read. Really 3 one sentence paragraphs in a row. I just ended skimming parts of the book. He had some good points, I just wish his writing was more linear and readable. "
