This is one of those lush books that comes around every few decades. It has such a depth that it will take weeks if not months to absorb it to any real depth. Fortunately, you can pick the theme closest to your heart and dig in as deep as you want. This book is not the answer, it is a springboard to go higher than ever before. With inspirational writing and introductions to what others are doing elsewhere, this is the first step towards the healing and wholeness all are seeking. There is much wisdom from many different corners of our world.
I give this book 5 STARS of 5!

This is a very good read for those who plan to rebuild their community. I believe that this is best for those who wants to start a new life in society. It will be highly applicable to the leaders in an urban area. This book should get more spotlight, so that many it can help educate the needy. Just by reading the introduction, I can conclude that I will definitely learn a lot from this book.
