Far away from fast food chains and Starbucks coffee, with no access to Amazon Prime and 24-hour fitness centers, experience life set in a simple, yet beautiful village in Tanzania, East Africa. In The Absence of Excess, Natasha T. Brown takes us on a spiritual journey where the heart of God is revealed in the simple truths of this rich African culture and its powerful and authentic Christian tradition.

Regardless of your faith background, The Absence of Excess will warm your heart and inspire your soul through stories of hope, love, friendships, and simplicity.
Could you survive without your everyday luxuries?
Could you live in a remote African village for six months?
What happens when Western world excess meets Eastern world simplicity?
Confront these realities and more in The Absence of Excess, a book that is sure to leave a deep impression on your soul for many years to come.
