Review: Next Door As It Is In Heaven by:Ford/Brisco

 Next Door as It Is in Heaven: Living Out God's Kingdom in Your Neighborhood
About the Book:
There was a time when neighbors knew each other's names, when small children and the old and infirm alike had more than their families looking out for them. There was a time when our neighborhoods were our closest communities.No more. Neighborhoods have become the place where nobody knows your name. Into this neighborhood crisis the words of Jesus still ring true: Second only to the command to love God is the command to "love your neighbor as yourself."In "Next Door as It Is in Heaven, " Lance Ford and Brad Brisco offer first principles and best practices to make our neighborhoods into places where compassion and care are once again part of the culture, where good news is once again more than words, and where the love of God can be once again rooted and established.

My Review:
 Along with technological advances came many other things in my generation. We no longer spend time with those around us and barely even our families. We are even more separated from God's choices and desires for our lives the more technology advances. We need to get back to His rules and standards for our lives because this world is quickly losing Jesus in the process and madness of all of this.

 The authors of Next Door As It Is In Heaven, give us some great ideas, suggestions and priciples in order to win the heart of our neighbors and those around us just as Jesus instructed us to do. we need to get back in the swing of things where we use to go out of our way to help a neighbor or encourage them. Times are hard these days and you never know how much a kind gesture or sweet word could brighten someone's day.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
