The UN uses three basic criteria to determine the world's most hospitable and habitable countries: life expectancy, educational level, and annual income. Underneath the apparent simplicity of these measures is a complex evaluation grid that touches on issues of politics, economics, cultural institutions, and similar elements of human culture. Money magazine's touchstones include leisure activities, access to health care, and traffic density. In The Four Best Places to Live, Mark Buchanan evaluates the same question with a uniquely different measure: the Holy Word of God. As Christians today, where can we find the greatest joy, peace, and wisdom? Where to experience the deepest sense of belonging? Where do true riches reside? With compelling insight, Buchanan explores what God has revealed in the Bible about where His people become most alive and most fully themselves.
