Front Cover
David C Cook, Jan 1, 2010 - Religion - 224 pages
Welcome to Me-Ville, where you're surrounded by a culture that celebrates and elevates the individual. The You Utopia where your home, place of work, and even your place of worshp, is customized to your discerning tastes. A super-exclusive club where Self and Pride party, and Sacrifice and Humility can't get past the velvet ropes. A place where it's all about you.

But is life supposed to be this way? Author Daivd Zimmerman takes us on a hilarious and honest trip through Me-Ville, while sharing the escape routes that lead out. David traces our self-loving lineage and examines prideful people in Scripture who were changed through God's power. Throughout, you'll encounter the powerful, progressive redemption from self that only Christ can offer.

Definitely a book for the age in which we are living. Reminding us that although we live down here it's not about us but the change needed has to be in us first. Read full review

Great book to get one thinking about whether you're living in Me-Ville, or if you're truly living for God. I found the chapters to go by, always leaving me with something I could really chew on, ponder, and apply to my life. I think I discovered wonderful insight on how to always keep Christ at the center of your life, and never let the relationship stray.
"The kingdom of God is firmly established because it's the place where our God reigns. Me-Ville is not. Me-Ville is where superbia reigns; it's a place from which we must escape."
(Deliver Us from Me-Ville, Introduction)
Note: The book has several references to popular, secular media. Most instances added additional humor to the point the author is trying to illustrate. Just thought I'd mention this fact for anyone that could be offended by reading about celebrities and TV shows in a Christian guidebook.
Overall, it's a great book that I'm glad I found!
