I have had this problem over the years with not finishing books. I am not a great reader, but want to be. I want to be that person that reads super fast and can finish 14 books in 2 weeks (I don't know where that number came from but you get the gist). So I have recently started (and plan to complete) a book called Death By Suburbs. The author is David Goetz. I am so convicted as I read this book. I feel as though I need to read it again as soon as I finish it in order not to forget anything he says. You see, I have another problem which Mr. Goetz addresses in his book. I am constantly in the world and mostly of the world. This is painful for the person who desperately wants to have a relationship with Christ. What an enormous struggle it is. Got a new car, want a newer car, have to have the greatest lawn, have to have the latest stuff. All the while loosing sight of why I am even on this earth to begin with. If you too have this struggle, pick up this book and read it. It is possible to have a deep relationship with our Lord while living in the suburbs!
