As the gap between rich and poor grows, many of us are aware that we have more than we need. In her new book, More than Enough: Living Abundantly in a Culture of Excess, Lee Hull Moses provides an opportunity to think about the complicated questions of inequality and abundance by providing concrete things we can do to live faithfully and responsibly with the gifts we’ve been given. With a blend of practical reflection and insight on topics from guilt to delight, More than Enough goes beyond a call to gratitude and generosity and invites the reader to a new way of life, one that is grounded in the hope and grace of God.
“God calls us to lives of enough,” Moses says. “Enough is not nothing. Enough has no winners or losers. No one goes hungry, no one gets lost. Enough, with grace, is abundant life.” More than Enough explores these difficult issues, soothing moral angst caused by one’s relative abundance in a world of need, and prompting action that feels realistic for busy families.
