  1. Building on the teachings of Thomas Merton and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, David Zimmerman outlines the journey from Me Ville to God s Kingdom that all Christians must travel and often, re travel The good news is, Jesus is the one who comes to Me Ville to lead the way out Each chapter includes ways that the journey changes us, practices we actively engage in as willing participants on the trip we aren t just along for the ride, after all , and Escape Routes or spiritual practices to try when you find y [...]


  2. A joyfully sarcastic look at our own self absorption from a Christian perspective This is a great look at how to navigate the self sacrificial mandate of our faith when we live in a society that assures us that I m important, yo


  3. You could say it was the title that drew me in Deliver us from Me ville Just saying it out loud makes me chuckle It s the kind of title that makes me want to jab you with my elbow, all the while smiling and asking you if you get it See, it s a play on words.Nevermind David Zimmerman has written a good book here on helping us move Move Yeah, from our current address in Me ville He points out, without apology, that living self centered is not where we want to be It would be easy for us to assume t [...]


  4. The author describes himself as edgy and that is probably why I didn t feel drawn to this book At times I was exasperated when Zimmerman talked about biblical characters in ways I never would have imagined He is convinced that John and Peter were at odds jealous even and that John revealed this clearly in his gospel, by exposing all of Peter s blunders I think some of it was probably meant to be funny, like John making sure that everyone knew he ran faster than Peter on that Resurrection day, bu [...]


  5. David Zimmerman spoke directly to my heart and my desire to rid myself of self centeredness There is no easy way to leave Me Ville It will hurt because it involves denying self, denying practices and wants that seem normal But the freedom we find in Thee ville is worth the pain.One of my favorite quotes was this To the extent we compare ourselves to one another, we are still trapped in the life God is calling us out of Ouch And guilty.I especially appreciated the inclusion of a passage from John [...]


  6. 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 pl [...]


  7. A book about how Jesus can displace us from the center of our self involved lives It s tough to do in America, but Zimmerman, aided by abundant quotes from the spiritually wise, especially Bonhoeffer, provides a route It includes spiritual practice and the church and focuses centrally on Jesus I liked his humorous, self deprecating tone and found the escape routes or exercises at the end of each chapter especially useful God knows I can use all the help I can get getting over me.


  8. Easy to read yet the author does mix in some challenging words If anything, and the reason I didn t give it a higher rating, is that he doesn t go far enough in examining the problems and complexities of cultural issues such as consumerism and individualism have on current Christianity But perhaps I shouldn t have let my desires cloud his work.


  9. The book was OK I read it over time so I am sure that helped in losing something in translation It is a look at us We tend to put ourselves on the throne and move Jesus off When we do that, then we are in Me Ville The object of the book is to get us out of there and on the way to Thee Ville Part of the problem with the book is that I kept feeling that the author was trying to paraphrase what other people had written In other words, the book, though original, was not an original thought but an ex [...]


  10. Definitely worth the time to read The author addresses a topic we all love ME In short, we are so obsessed with ourselves that we need God to rescue us Through an extended conversation the author addresses how to seek the Lord Thee ville instead of ourselves Me ville Enjoy


  11. I wasn t a huge fan of Zimmerman s style It was too cute, or too much like he started with the title and then wrote the book I also felt he was a little too loose with theology or precision in a few spots.Nevertheless, I made numerous highlights throughout on some good points, but felt that the strongest content was on side trails from the main road.


  12. With self awareness and insight, along with a sense of humor, David Zimmerman takes the reader on a journey from Me Ville to We Ville, then beyond that toward the City of God as we follow Christ The honesty of our insidious self centered tendencies, even or especially in worship, makes this a must read for any Christian There are always three fingers pointing back to the author as well, seeking truth over a false sense of heroism This would make a great companion to Dietrich Bonhoeffer s The Cos [...]


  13. Thought Provoking This book will make you consider your current spiritual position and relationship with Jesus Christ If you want to live a fuller, satisfying life you can have it by doing what this book suggests Get the focus off of yourself and back to where it should be.


  14. My rating 3.5I first opened this book in search of a good laugh I have to say that I was very surprised at the level of depth In many parts of the book, I felt that my flesh and selfish heart were described shamefully well I left this book humble and with a deeper notion of God s truly amazing grace.


  15. Simple necessary truthsEasy to read It feels like taking a stroll with an old friend who softly but surely talks into your heart the things you need to hear.I needed this It s helped me refocus.


  16. I loved this book David Zimmerman somehow found a way to mix his hilarious sense of humor with a very serious challenge to our Christian faith, and it is perfect.


  17. Easy readbut deepI felt this book quickly covered the issues and offered practical tools and questions to work you through an escape from me ville



  18. I would challenge every teen and young adult to read this book Very witty and fun and insightful Love it, and the author.




  19. A good topic, but i wasn t captivated by it I didn t feel like I heard anythingnew It does have a discussion guide which would make this book a nice group study.
