ECPA BESTSELLER • 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 the pages of this book, you’ll find a fascinating roadmap to staying emotionally healthy and spiritually alive in the chaos of the modern world.
This book is great! I never thought of hurrying in this way #lifechanging
Simple and profound
Yes, a book can be both simple and profound. JMC brings multiple layers of why being an apprentice of Jesus is to slow down in every aspect of our lives. When has hurrying (besides in emergency situations) produced the fruits of the spirit? As a mother of 4 young children, and also a returning student and an active volunteer in my church I didn’t think my life was abnormally busy. That’s the catch...in 2021 everyone is busy. There’s a better way to live and follow Jesus and all it takes is some simple practices. Read it! You won’t regret it!
A Must Read!!
This book has changed my life! I loved the audio book so much that I’m going to buy the hard copy to take notes & highlight over and over again!
