    I really love reading something and hearing the authors voice and excitement regarding the topic Dwight in excellent fashion explains Buber's concepts of genuine meeting in practical ways that are easy to imagine and dream The hope and excitement laced within these pages gives me deep hope and healthy concern for the Church and how I get to be involved in it's mission and how the voices of others are vital in its future

    There a uite a few valuable insights in here but the subtitle led me to hope for a lot I think that most of the insights credited to network theory come just as readily from thinking about how we were created as social beings who need community

    Dwight explains Martin Buber's concepts better than Buber does I seriously wish I'd been given this text to read alongside Buber last year
