Abstract:

The broad compounding effect of relationship loss and division across home, work, politics, and faith now devours our relational capacity - the vast productive potential inherent in relationships. This loss is becoming the single most destructive trend that threatens our society emotionally, socially, politically, and economically. In This land of stranger, Hall sounds the alarm that compels us to change the conversation. He lays out the seismic relational shift taking place right before our eyes and then describes its cost, cause, and cure. Backed by extensive research and practical experience, he drives home a simple but powerful truth: relationships are our single most valuable and value-creating possession. In this book he invites you to join him in restoring the relationships that are so central to the lives we want and the society we need."--Back cover.
