Book Giveaway! Eric Jacobsen – 3 Pieces of Glass: Why We Feel Lonely

Eric Jacobsen Book GiveawayWe’re excited to run this giveaway of FIVE copies of this superb new book by Eric Jacobsen,

Three Pieces of Glass: Why We Feel Lonely in a World Mediated by Screens
Eric Jacobsen

Paperback: Brazos Press, 2020.
 

Loneliness is increasingly recognized as a major public health crisis that is on the rise and impacting people of all ages. Addressing the crisis of loneliness from a fresh perspective, this book introduces belonging as an overlooked but critical aspect of a flourishing Christian life.

Eric Jacobsen shows how three pieces of glass–the car windshield, TV, and smartphone–are emblematic of significant societal shifts that have created a cultural habit of physical isolation. We feel increasingly disconnected from the people and places around us. Jacobsen explains how adopting everyday practices and making changes in our neighborhoods can help us create a sense of belonging and rediscover what belonging in a place looks like. In order to effectively solve the problem of loneliness, we need to recover patterns and practices of community life that encourage us to form meaningful connections with people and stories that are part of the places where we live, work, and worship. To this end, Jacobsen offers four redemptive strategies for living a more intentional and spiritual life.
