Death By Suburb


Some time ago I commented on a book called Death By Suburb.
I found this book last week in Adelaide and couldn’t resist, despite the ridiculous $45 price tag!
I must confess it was worth every dollar spent. A great read. And one that I feel connected deeply to something of the heart beat of many…(Some?) in our group here in Joondalup.

The premise behind this book is a captivating one. Is life in the suburbs detrimental to a living faith? Goetz claims it can be but, with the intentional approach he outlines in this book, it does not have to be. We understand what he means: superficiality and sterility are the suburbia stereotype. In the pleasant bedroom communities of America, it can seem as if people are more concerned with tidy flowerbeds than they are the things that nurture the soul.
