Reviews on Amazon and Goodreads:

“Insightful examination into the causes of the spiritual problems we face today as individuals and a nation. I enjoyed the way the authors used statistics, historical examples, personal anecdotes, biblical scriptural references and analysis to discuss the subject of spiritual connection. The challenges brought up (secular humanism, socialism, materialism, globalization, etc.) are described in detail as are the solutions (self-examination, spiritual renewal and connection to God). This book will help you reconnect spiritually with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and most importantly God.”

“This book was well thought out and organized…One aspect that I particularly appreciated was the use of several spiritual outlooks versus one, tunnel vision, perspective of spirituality…”

“I’ve been searching so long for a book that would help me understand what it means to stay spiritually connected while struggling in this crazy world. There are great books out there but none of them are to the point and precise like this one…I recommend this book for youth group or youth studies…”

Note: All profits from book sales go to local charities that further spiritual connections.
