Sarah I agree that the American Dream has been taken way too far, and that as Americans we have lost sight of God's command to preach the Good News and how He expects us to live our lives. But, I also think that the book needs a small dose of reality. Mainly, because we are required to give our family/children a certain standard of living, or we can be charged with neglect and have our children removed from our home. I have seen this happen to good families. This standard has a price tag. We must teach the Gospel, but the Bible also tells us to care for our children. I don't think the author balanced this very well. Or, maybe he needs to explain his "radical" vision set forth in this book a little better, so that readers can picture what it looks like for a normal family to live this out. With that said, I very much enjoyed the book.
