"Every Christian should read this provocative book! Christine thoroughly delineates the interlocking relationships and dangerous deformities of practices that could deepen our communities but often destroy them. This volume is pertinent to our families, churches, even places of work." Spirit & Life
"Pohl draws together the experiences, study, and reflection of twenty pastors, leaders, and professors on building community. . . . This is a book to be read slowly and pondered." Mennonite Brethren Herald
"I recommend this book. . . . Pohl's principles make sense, and are a worthwhile challenge to anyone who desires to create, live in, and maintain better community. This book would be a valuable resource for church leaders, pastors, and church planters."
