Review: Advent Conspiracy by Rick McKinley, Chris Seay and Greg Holder

The Advent Conspiracy by Rick McKinley, Chris Seay and Greg Holder was a great book on looking outward versus inward in our giving habits.  So many times, especially at the Christmas season, we write down our wish list and say

Where's my stuff?

This book takes that philosophy and turns it on its head.  Instead of asking “where's my stuff?“, it asks the question,

How can I spend less and give more away?

The authors are not suggesting that you get nothing for the Christmas season, but rather you think of others who may not have anything or who need something more than your new clothes or new Wii.  I read this book on the way to Colorado and loved the philosophy.  The authors gathered together to start an “Advent Conspiracy” by providing clean drinking water for those in underdeveloped nations.  The “idea” or “concept” has blossomed into whatever anyone wants the “Advent Conspiracy” to be.

Spending less and giving more away is not a new idea, but it is an idea that has gotten lost in the shuffle of priorities during our busy Christmas seasons'.  I can tell you from first hand experience that it really is a great thing to give away more and spend less on yourselves.
