Review quote

"Jonathan speaks out like the prophets of old, and calls us into an alternative lifestyle." --Tony Campolo, Professor Emeritus, Eastern University "Stability may be the virtue that 21st-century Christians most ignore---and the virtue we are most called to embrace. This fine book will inspire you to look at your own life, asking, 'Where am I restless? Where might God be calling me to be rooted, to stay put?" --Lauren Winner, author of Mudhouse Sabbath and Girl Meets God "Jonathan speaks out like the prophets of old, and calls us into an alternative lifestyle." --Tony Campolo, Professor Emeritus, Eastern University "Stability may be the virtue that 21st-century Christians most ignore---and the virtue we are most called to embrace.
