Can we really enjoy the world while trying to save it? Many of us want to do both, but find a balance difficult to achieve. Part how-to and part memoir, Schaper's book shows us a socially responsible way of having it all.

The short, humorous chapters are about simplifying: food, children, money, romance. From the Slow Food Movement to the lighting of simple fires, Schaper provides basic strategies and spiritual solutions for living well and doing good, drawing from her own experience of working for social change while attempting to live fully.

Donna Schaper, a minister of the United Church of Christ and Senior Pastor of Judson Memorial Church in New York City, is recognized as one of the most outstanding communicators of her generation of Protestant clergy. Schaper has written books on everything from becoming 40, keeping Sabbath, and spiritual rock gardening to devotional guides and the differences between male and female ministerial styles. She also contributes to The Other Side, Zion's Herald, Christian Century, Mother Jones, and The Nation. She lives in New York City.
