Ebook a giveaway! Eric Jacobsen – Three items of glass: Why we really feel lonely
We are pleased to present this giveaway with FIVE copies of this great new book by Eric Jacobsen,
Three pieces of glass: why we feel lonely in a screen-mediated world
Paperback: Brazos Press, 2020.
Loneliness is increasingly recognized as a major public health crisis that is growing and affecting people of all ages. This book deals with the crisis of loneliness from a new perspective and presents belonging as an overlooked but critical aspect of a thriving Christian life.
Eric Jacobsen shows how three pieces of glass – the windshield, the television and the smartphone – are a symbol of significant social changes that have created a cultural habit of physical isolation. We increasingly feel separated from the people and places around us. Jacobsen explains how adopting everyday practices and changes in our neighborhood can help us create a sense of belonging and rediscover what belonging looks like in one place. To effectively solve the problem of loneliness, we need to restore community life patterns and practices that encourage us to make meaningful connections to people and stories that are part of the places where we live, work, and worship. For this purpose, Jacobsen offers four redemption strategies for a more intentional and spiritual life.
