In the early weeks of October, 2002, the Washington, DC area was terrorized by a sniper who took the lives of eleven civilians. What made the shootings most frightening was the indiscriminate targeting of the victims; no one felt safe from the threat.
It seemed as though the sniper was targeting victims at places representative of valued American ideals—convenience, mobility, autonomy, leisure, abundance, and the opportunity of choice. Through this book, we have the opportunity to examine our lives and re-examine what we value. We should pause and consider what God's Word says about our priorities.
