A great number of seekers find themselves in the seemingly unreal world of the suburbs. They read spirituality books but find themselves in carpools and coaching soccer, not in monasteries. Dave Goetz, a former pastor, shows that the suburbs are a real world, but a spiritually corrosive one. The land of SUVs and soccer leagues can truly be toxic to the soul. Suburbanites need to understand how the environment affects them and what spiritual disciplines are needed for their faith to survive and thrive. Goetz identifies eight toxins in the suburban life, such as hyper-competition and the "transactional" friendship, and suggests eight corresponding disciplines to keep the spiritual life authentic. Goetz weaves sociology studies, his own experiences, current events, wisdom of the spiritual masters, and a little humor to equip spiritual suburbanites for how to relate to God amidst Starbucks, strip-malls, and perfect lawns.… (mere)

Death by Suburb: How to keep the Suburbs From Killing Your Soul by Dave Goetz is a straight shot look at maintaining spirituality in the midst of competition and commercialism that so often define suburbia. From Wheaton, Illinois, (an affluent suburb of Chicago) Goetz describes his experiences of seeking God instead of seeking status symbols and outlines eight practical applications for the reader. These take home points range from the need for times of quiet reflection, how to best serve others above oneself and developing deep and meaningful relationships.

Although written from a Christian perspective with examples drawn from Catholic and Protestant theologians, this is a work that provides sensible advice to people from any faith looking for less chaos in suburban living. Anyone who has struggled with time management, control issues, stress, balance, overwork, or friendship problems could find helpful words in this book. Goetz is an amusing and talented writer and Death by Suburb is a highly enjoyable book. ( )
