    Great advice from 'Me-Ville'

    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.
