The Case for Commitment in an Age of Infinite Browsing
by Pete Davis
Copyright © 2021
“An inspiring argument that commitment can be a powerful force in our age of restlessness, short attention spans, and infinite choices.” – from the back cover
Pete Davis’s book about commitment carries a message that can inspire and empower many audiences: church congregations, parents, business leaders, and even politicians. He makes the point that the mode many people are stuck in, “infinite browsing and keeping our options open,” makes us restless, tense, and unproductive. And he says that, while it is vital to explore possibilities, it is through making deep commitments that we find a sense of purpose, depth, and community.
Davis’s ideas are good fodder for preaching, teaching, and building community. And they can help spiritual leaders and students become “long-haulers” in a life journey.
Pete Davis is a civic advocate who works on American solidarity. His Harvard Law School graduation speech, “A Counterculture of Commitment,” has been viewed more than 30 million times.
