Summary

A fresh, challenging and compassionate response to busyness, based on the way of life Jesus offered his disciples.

Who are you becoming? That was the question nagging pastor and author John Mark Comer. By outward metrics, everything appeared successful. But inwardly, things weren't pretty. So he turned to a trusted mentor for guidance and heard these words: 'Ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life. Hurry is the great enemy of the spiritual life.' It wasn't the response he expected, but it continues to be the answer he needs.

Too often we treat the symptoms of toxicity in our modern world instead of trying to pinpoint the cause. A growing number of voices are pointing at hurry, or busyness as a root of much evil. Within this audiobook, you'll find a compelling emotional and spiritual case against hurry and in favour of a slower, simpler way of life.

Refreshing and liberating

I would recommend this to anyone who is tired of being over busy, weighed down by too many demands in life. It’s an honest, vulnerable account of someone who has been there and continues to choose a different way, a simpler life with time to be, time to love, time to enjoy all that’s good in life.
I found it irresistible and thought- provoking. I am making significant changes to my life as a result of reading this.

Must Read...so why 4 stars

I don't believe in God. However, the author even tries to pigeon hole this to believers. Despite that, it's essential and lots to learn. Challenge your habits.

Thank you!!!

Took me too long to read this, but will read again. Rooted in scripture and full of first hand experience that resonates with everything about life and the message we receive to “hustle!”. I choose peace, trust, rest and living in the moment while looking forward to eternity.

I loved this book!

So much wisdom and teaching! I also see Jesus as a great teacher and the book shows in a very light way how to apply his teachings to our life, now, with social media and email, and it was so funny and lovely, I felt like having a conversation throughout the book!
