Challenging and provoking
In this book, Foster challenges us to view ourselves and our stuff from God's perspective - His people and His stuff. In calling us to the freedom from protecting our possessions, he leads us to live our lives with an open hand.
He remains ecumenical in his sourcing for this work, much like Celebration of Discpline. Even in this, his "Quaker-ness" comes through, with the beauty of Jesus as teacher.
A worthy read, and the narrator does a superb job in creating the illusion that the words are his. The hours of listening are much like having a deep, extended conversation with a trusted friend rather than a stilted lecture from a professor.

It's Not About Simplicity
Any additional comments?
This book is mistitled. It's about Christian charity and giving, which is a fine message, but not why I bought the audio book. Almost all of the book provides a Biblical basis for helping our Christian brothers and sisters, but just about none of it how to achieve simplicity. This was a disappointment. The message is great. It's just not about simplicity.
