I have just completed my second reading of the book More Than Me. I totally enjoyed the framework the 3 authors--Petersen, McMahan, and Russ--have used to give us a foundation for relational well being. Although the book is punctuated with biblical references, it is done in a very appealing and winsome manner. Their use of 'God' and "Jesus Christ' actually make the subject of spirituality and religion more accessible than most books I've read.
It's evident from the introduction of the book that these authors are committed to being vulnerable and transparent, as well as promoting a way of life that doesn't treat people as 'objects' to be used or manipulated, but they communicate the beauty of humankind's identity as being rooted in the imago Dei, the image of God. And that we need to treat them as the Creator intends.
Unlike so much exclusivistic religious/spiritual writing, these men use non technical language, but appealing language and metaphors and illustrations to capture the essence of what makes life deeply meaningful and worth living.
I loved this book so much I have started a book club with 15 other people over our bi weekly breakfast to talk about the implications of these insights in our various roles in life.
The only additional suggestion I would make to the authors would be that if they are going to write a book on relationships, that it would be helpful to include a women's insights, especially if it's three men writing. Other than that, this book is a huge hit with me and my friends.
