Review

We Americans love our stuff. We re living in a fast-paced, me-first, instant-gratification world, and it s finally catching up to us. Debt is out of control, homes are in foreclosure ... even banks are going out of business. What the world needs today is the message of contentment and simplicity, and that s exactly what Pastor Adam Hamilton delivers in Enough. --Dave Ramsey, New York Times Best-Selling Author and Nationally Syndicated Radio Talk Show Host

Once again, Adam Hamilton is leading the church; Enough is enough was once a Wesleyan watchword. Adam breathes new life into the Wesleyan commitment to simplicity. Amid a culture of greed and conspicuous consumption Adam calls us to a biblically based, evangelical joy of having the faith to say enough is enough. --Bishop Will Willimon United Methodist Church, Birmingham Area

I pay close attention to whatever Adam Hamilton writes. His books are marked by extraordinary pastoral insight, biblical and theological depth, courage to speak the truth, and down-to-earth practicality. Enough comes like an antidote in the middle of a pandemic. I hope that classes, groups, couples, and individuals will use this book and the economic crisis it addresses as a challenge to get healthy again by deepening our discipleship in the vital area of money and possessions. --Brian McLaren, Author/Networker (brianmclaren.net) --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

I seem to be creating an Adam Hamilton's theme but I am finally getting around to writing about his book Enough, Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity. I couldn't write about it right away because I wanted my wife to read it first. We both loved the book. It is not that it was the first book ever written on the subject, it is just the Hamilton has a great way of speaking simply and clearly about complex issues. He also has a way, in his preaching and writing, of convicting without offending. The role of a prophetic preacher is often to point out where we have gone astray. The problem is that we, being human, shrink back and stop listening or reading when someone really hits the nail on the head. I think that part of Hamilton's success is about his uncanny ability to speak the truth in love.

We are living in uncertain time economically. Uncertain times can cause us to reflect upon our focus and priorities and this is what the book is all about. Hamilton is too grounded to simplify this into saying "just give ten percent to the church and everything will be okay." This is about changing our relationship with money by focusing on our relationship with God. This is about making changes in the way we live that better reflect who we are.

The text is full of scripture references and there is something different about how Hamilton references the Bible. These are not just "proof texts" that mention money. They are texts that point out our need to refocus on God, our need to see that our brokenness and emptiness will never be cured by buying, owning and possessing. We are led to find our peace and contentment in God and be free to live life in simplicity and to share generously. The book is spiritual based, but when you get right down to it, it is practical.

I really enjoyed this little book. It is timely and courageous. Through great Biblical wisdom it calls us all back to a way of living that is not only Christ-like, but wise and relevant for our times. I'm a pastor of a small church in California and I'm seriously considering purchasing a copy for everyone in my church.

In the ultimate sense, this is still a book about tithing. Everything included in this book leads up to that principle. This is an honest assessment. Yet in the broader scope, the book has some advice that a lot of people may find practical.

The economy would not be in its current state if people and the country itself were not living beyond their means. With this in mind, Adam Hamilton gives practical advice for balancing your home budget. On the other hand, many of us are practical budget managers. Grant it, there are always things to cut from the budget. I could skip eating out once per week. I could buy cheap beer instead of good beer. These are things I may not be willing to do. This does not mean I can not make a healthy contribution to the church.

I do agree with the principle of giving back to the Lord. Hamilton states that if you can not give 10%, set a percentage of your budget to give to the Lord. Obviously, do not force the children to live on popcorn to meet the 10%. Make a commitment. We are blessed by what we share.

Perhaps the greatest flaw in the book is that it focuses on monetary gifts. Giving can also be of time or skill. One need not open his/her wallet to share with the Lord.

This is not the first Adam Hamilton book that I have read. I feel that it is the best one yet, and that is setting the bar up. Our church studied an advent experience, and an Easter experience produced by Adam Hamilton. I say experienced because each book came with a ten minute video introduction for each chapter. With Adam, I vicariously walked the path that Christ walked to His crucifixion. I learn a detailed account of the Sadar meal. The places of honor were at the side of the table, not the center, like da Vinci's mural. The reason we are studying Enough at church is due to our church budget operating in the red for two years in a row. Either those who stitched are not fulfilling their promise, or far more people refuse to tithe anything at all. For the past five years, we have cut and cut some more from our budget. We have read several different books, and talked to the congregation about the importance of tithing. Enough is the best of all the other books we have tried. It takes financial management for Christians, and breaks it down into easy to understand, and solidly founded in Biblical principles.

The author combines solid financial advice with sound theology. But read it backwards: start with the Epilog then Chapter 5, ... In the early chapters he spends too much ink on what not to do. Furthermore, simplicity is easier when you know your purpose in life, which he addresses more toward the end.

Excellent book! Highly recommend it! Ordering more copies for friends! Really motivating & love that it is immersed with scripture to support the author's thoughts. I am now carrying it in my purse so when I am Tempted to buy More Stuff I Don't Need--at least I have something to help me resist the temptation of Buying Yet More Stuff--well most of the time!
