faith in the suburbs

Very rarely do books leap to my "want list" simply upon reading a single review of them, but today, there were two exceptions to that rule. Some key words here for you - suburbs, money, security, time and spirituality. If any of those words strike you, perhaps this article/review and will strike you as it did me. If you you've read Goetz's book, I'd like to know what you think of it (Hsu's is yet to hit the press).
