Discover a compelling emotional and spiritual case against hurry and in favor of a slower, simpler way of life.
Who am I becoming?
That was the question that was bothering pastor and author John Mark Comer. Outwardly, he looked highly successful. But inwardly, things weren't good. He turned to a trusted mentor for guidance and heart 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 still is, the answer he needs. Too often we seek to treat the symptoms of toxicity in our modern world, instead of focusing on the pinpoint cause. A growing number of voices are starting to point to hurry, or busyness, as the root of much evil.
In this book, you'll find a fascinating road map to staying emotionally healthy and spiritually alive in the chaos of the modern world.
