John Mark Comer never disappoints in his writing and teaching. There is a minority of people in the world that think, speak, and live out of a conviction as he does. In Ruthless Elimination, Comer unpacks why we feel so tired, worn out, stressed, anxious, and constantly on the go--our hurry. He positions that the root of our issue isn't that we are too busy, but that we may not be busy with the right things. After all, each person has the same 24 hours each day; it's what we do with those hours that matters most.
The world we live in today lives fast--fast food, fast fashion, instant gratification, the drive to continually have something to make us feel complete and whole. It's left us tired, worn out, stressed, unhappy, and hurried.
Is this the book we want? Yes and no. Yes, for all of us that are seeking to find the rest for our souls that Jesus speaks of in Matthew's gospel. No, because reading this book, you will come to the realization that this life will cost you--but what it gives back is so. much. better.
This is not the book we want in this moment we live in. It's what we desperately need.
