The Rewards of Simplicity
Although I do not necessarily agree with everything in this book, it did make some valid points. For example, the authors did a great job of explaining why simplicity is important in the life of an individual and supporting their claims with Scripture. However, there were portions that I do not believe were supported by Scripture and those are the portions that I question.
Some of the most effective points made by the authors were: the need for a Sabbath, a day of rest from normal work activities, and how anxiety can affect a person’s health and the need to put our trust in God to help us simplify our lives. The portion of the book relating to anxiety seemed very well-researched and I found to be very helpful.
