Jefferson Bethke, New York Times bestselling author, encourages readers to resist the cultural tend to worship connectivity and achievement before losing sight of the essentials that make us distinctly and deeply human.
Our culture constantly demands that we do more, accomplish more, buy more, post more, and tweet more. Following those demands has led to a lifestyle of more...more anxiety, more tired, more hurt, more depressed, and more frantic. Jefferson Bethke argues that what we are doing isn't working because we are forgetting the fundamentals that make us human, the very things that anchor our lives, providing us with roots and meaning.
In To Hell With The Hustle Jefferson Bethke presents a wake-up call to resist our culture and embrace the slowness of Jesus. Stop doing, and start becoming, by proactively establishing boundaries in your life and cultivating disciplines within them. Learn how to find landmarks, anchors, and rhythms that provide depth and meaning. Push back against the demands of contemporary life. You will learn that the things the world teaches us to avoid at all costs—silence obscurity, solitude, and vulnerability—are the very things that can give us meaning, depth, order, and the richness we are seeking.
