Hygee is a Danish word that has no English word as an equivalent. It implies peace, comfort, and a place to gather. The author illustrates this concept to include how the truths of the Gospel. Hygee appeals to our desire to escape the busy life, slow down, and connect with others. It is warm and inviting and embraces beauty and contentment.
The chapters in the book include Hospitality, Relationships, Well Being, Atmosphere, Comfort, Contentment, Rest and A Home for the Homeless. At the end of each chapter there are questions to consider about the topic presented, Scripture to read and ponder and a prayer about the topic. There is also an appendix that has many ideas to put into practice the concepts presented.
This is a timely topic and one our busy world desperately needs. It could be used for a small group discussion. I highly recommend this book. I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for this honest review.
