Description

ECPA best seller • A compelling emotional and spiritual case against hurry and in favor of a slower, simpler way of life

"As someone all too familiar with ‘hurry sickness,’ I desperately needed this book." (Scott Harrison, New York Times best-selling author of Thirst)

"Who am I becoming?"

That was the question nagging pastor and author John Mark Comer. Outwardly, he 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 was - and 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 fascinating road map to staying emotionally healthy and spiritually alive in the chaos of the modern world.

Commentaires

“As someone all too familiar with ‘hurry sickness’, I desperately needed this book.” (Scott Harrison, New York Times best-selling author of Thirst)

“Necessary. Freeing.” (Annie F. Downs, best-selling author of 100 Days to Brave and Remember God)

“There are those rare books that every single waking person needs to immediately go read. This is that book. We’ve found no better conversation or a more much-needed antidote to our culture’s problem of busyness and hurry than John Mark’s words in this book. Beyond helpful and encouraging and insightful to us!” (Alyssa and Jefferson Bethke, New York Times best-selling authors of Jesus > Religion and Love That Lasts

Transformative

A fan of JMC's teaching and writing style, I couldn't wait to listen to this narrative and it did not disappoint. Comer's well worn teaching's on Sabbath wove their way into another book (similar content to Garden City), but the remainder was full of content that was new, insightful, educational and transformative. I took away many tangible/tactical ways that I can be more like Jesus by slowing down like hiding social media apps, minimizing possessions, using a budget, not rushing while driving or at the grocery store, re-wearing outfits. I hope that those ideas don't discourage you from reading the book. Yes, they are challenging but and all very difficult to do in the world we live in but Comer's Biblical knowledge and gentle teaching style allow the WHY behind the ideas to be received as an invitation to the lifestyle that you actually truly desire - to be more like Jesus and live with His easy yoke. I am excited for the challenge ahead to change habits and live in the truth presented in the book so that I can rest easier in this world and be more content with what I have. I have needed a good motivation to do this. My soul desperately needed to hear what was contained in the book because I am very burdened by this world. I would encourage every Christ follower AND every burnt out, over booked, busy person in the world to read it and be encouraged that there is an alternative way to live. Jesus wasn't in a hurry and we can find inner peace when we're not either. Thanks John Mark for using your gifts on another incredible piece.

John Mark’s most helpful work

I’ve been following the teachings and writings of John Mark Comer since I was a 15-year-old new believer living in Portland, OR (12 years ago). I’ve always respected his intellectual and reverend perspective on the Gospel and while listening to this new book, I was pleasantly convicted as well as refreshed. He undoubtedly has found a much deeper level of peace in his walk with Jesus and this information should be put to good use by anyone willing to pause and listen.
I’ve also been following his teachings with “The Way of Jesus” in CA as well as his sermons at his home church on the topic (podcasts) of hurry/the spiritual disciplines and even in his tone and demeanor, you can see how this revelation of deeper relationship with God has truly changed him into a more at-peace and joy-filled person.
Do your soul a favor and don’t just read this book but follow the principals and find rest.

Oil Change

Not to try to seem overly "clever" but I imagined that my life has been consistently going and going. I finally stop for an "oil change" and inspection and I learned things that could cause my "car " to not last as long as it probably should. An easy and encouraging listen!

My favorite book next to the Bible

This book was engaging from beginning to end. It really is the most revelant topic of our age - society at large is living rat race to nowhere. This book thoroughly tackles that subject in such a refreshing and practical way. So much more to be said but I'm going to have to listen to the book again to elaborate. Also bonus points for the author actually reading, that made it so much more enjoyable.

To slow down or not to slow down

Perfect book for this time of quarentine. Being able to apply change right away based on skills and strategies to help you become closer to Jesus. I am excited to slow down and live a life of simplicity.

Insightful

I enjoyed listen to this book. Some of the content isn’t particularly new, but there are some excellent insights and applications that make this a terrific read for those who chronically feel exhausted and desire a closer walk with Jesus minus the legalism.
