The Loneliness Solution by Jack Eason, with a giveaway


Book description:

You are not alone.

Despite our connected world--and partly because of it--we are lonelier than ever. Social media tricks us into thinking that we are engaged in genuine friendships. Yet instead of intimacy, we get little more than what amounts to digital small talk. But there is a solution.

With plenty of good humor and practical advice, Jack Eason invites you to discover the benefits of doing life together with other brothers and sisters in Christ. Grounding his message in Scripture, Eason helps you

· learn the obstacles to real community

· reimagine what real friendship looks like

· discover a place of true belonging

· and more

If you're tired of feeling lonely, this encouraging and community-building book is just what you need.

My review:

  This book caught my eye for two reasons: The subject matter, and the fact that one of my favorite Christian suspense authors recommended it, Lynette Eason....who is his wife. :)

  I found the book to be very practical, with a lot of useful information and advice. It is an interactive book, with a few questions to answer at the end of each chapter along with a "putting it into practice" exercise.

 The book is split up into two sections: section one has six chapters on the problem of loneliness, and addresses the how's and why's of loneliness, even in this age of everyone being connected on social media. The second section is the is about the loneliness solution, with twice as many chapters, coming in at twelve chapters.

  Loneliness is a tough subject with no easy and quick fixes, and the author doesn't indicate otherwise. He does an excellent job of addressing both the problem and solution of loneliness, and I like the fact that he dedicated twice as many chapters to the solution as he does to the problem. Loneliness is something everyone deals with at some point and at some level in their lives, so this is an important and timely book, especially at this crazy time of a virus and quarantines.

 The book is an interesting and easy read, and is something I recommend for everyone to read. Even if one is not lonely, there is advice on how to find and help those who are lonely.

I was provided a copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions in this review are my own.
