From the first paragraph of the first chapter to the last, this book is a humorously insightful read. Sprinkled with well-distributed quotes, references and an abundance of real-life experience, 'Deliver Us From Me-Ville' takes a real look at the trappings of self-centeredness and the various 'escape routes' not only leading to other-centeredness but to the ultimately valuable and important goal of a truly Christ-centered life. Individuals in American society will easily relate to the ease with which we get caught up in our own personal supposed utopia, our 'Me-Ville'. Zimmerman, however, offers solutions to change our lives in order to better ourselves and others to live in a way more pleasing to the Lord--the way He intends for us to live.

Great book to get one thinking about whether you're living in Me-Ville, or if you're truly living for God. I found the chapters to go by, always leaving me with something I could really chew on, ponder, and apply to my life. I think I discovered wonderful insight on how to always keep Christ at the center of your life, and never let the relationship stray. "The kingdom of God is firmly established because it's the place where our God reigns. Me-Ville is not. Me-Ville is where superbia reigns; it's a place from which we must escape." (Deliver Us from Me-Ville, Introduction) Note: The book has several references to popular, secular media. Most instances added additional humor to the point the author is trying to illustrate. Just thought I'd mention this fact for anyone that could be offended by reading about celebrities and TV shows in a Christian guidebook. Overall, it's a great book that I'm glad I found!
