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.

Much Needed

This was a phenomenal read to start my 2021. Living out of rest and faith. Not hurried, and living life with margins, room for God to do what he does. I was beyond stressed coming out of 2019 and God has been trying to teach me about rest for years. I’m so hopeful for this new journey of me finally slowing down to listen and hear what He has always wanted to teach me. Thank you.

Cautiously worth your time.

Reasons this is very worth listening to: - Important considerations for what purpose hurry is serving in your life and what shifting this may also reveal - Interesting reasoning and facts regarding where we are as culture with hurry and screen-focused. - Offers multiple approaches to shifting our relationship with hurry (so long as you do not take his suggestions as rules to follow) - Particularly enjoyed his inclusion of silence and solitude - Relatively short, can re-listen later to get some of what you'll miss the first time through. - Tone is enjoyable and overall the whole thing is very listen-able (basically listened to the whole thing in one day) Criticisms: - Still seems very much tied into the American Evangelical culture, to the point much of what is suggested still whiffs of "do this, do that" and some of the ways things are phrased sound like a 3-point sermon - Fairly dismissive of people with different personality styles, asking people to fit into his preferred style; this is rather inflexible and limits the potential benefits readers/listeners could gain if they are not "rule-followers" - Both these add up to a sense the author may be a bit young still and possibly has gotten sucked into the Evangelical book culture, this one being a "and my life fell apart so here is the method I used to pick up the pieces" style. - Instead, could approach the areas he is talking about in a "what effect is this having on your physical/emotional/spiritual wellbeing?" so as to convey the option of a possibly better way of living without saying his way is the healthy way. - Would be helpful to allow for more uncertainty and flexibility in eliminating hurry. Seems as though following what he says could easily lead you to lay down the yoke of hurry only to pick up the yoke of legalistic rule-following.

For the hurry-sick and hopeful...

This book is exactly what I needed as I start my journey towards a more sustainable schedule and life. It is so palatable and practical... I didn’t want it to end. It is a gold mine of new and ancient ideas, and it should be required reading for every person who doesn’t have time in the day to read...:)

A must listen!

Some books have nuggets here and there and the rest is filler. This book is just mostly solid gold. I will definitely be listening to this again. Ironically, the narrator read way too fast. I had to slow down the speed! But he was still very enjoyable to listen to. Great book and worth purchasing.

Worth it!

This has been a thought provoking topic that I’ve wanted to delve into more and JMC communicates that well in this book and also in the sermon series at Bridgetown. I just finished this book before getting into a car accident today and what stands out to me other than the practice of Godful rest is the Spiritual discipline of abiding in Him. Thanks JMC!

A Must Read - More Than Once!

There are so many books about focusing on what matters - but with humor and contemporary relevance, JM provokes in a good way, to slow down and focus on what matters most. I will be reading/reviewing this book many more times!

Love it!

Love this book, easy and so enjoyable to listen to. I been running around all my Christian life, loving Jesus with a passion, serve and desire to live out the great comission, but..... just so tired. This book has transformed my thinking about how to follow Jesus, abide in Jesus rest and peace. Slowly applying practices and I am already feeling more free and peaceful, also I can hear God voice!! I feel I totally missed living a Christian life before. Thank you for Jesus for John Mark Comer, his testimony has already and will transform my life, and how I love Jesus, others, and myself!!!!

Ruthlessly Good

John Mark Comer's voice is KILLER. He is so easy to listen to and this book has so much goodness to it. Such great insight, read at a great pace and awesome illustrations of what living a life without hurry looks like. Highly recommend.

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.

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.

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.

Pedantic and Patronizing

As a thoughtful Christian myself, I was hoping for more than self aggrandizing to-do list in book form. The author assumes a simple audience who needs guidance on the minute external details of “how to do life”, rather than focusing on the deeper reasons we tend toward business and hurry. What is behind our need for productivity or distraction? What’s the desire in my heart I’m seeking to answer with this “other”, instead of Christ? Cherry picked statistics and socio-political themes woven with a surface level and performance oriented religious “way” turned me off completely. Ironically, during his chapter “Slowly”, I turned up my reading speed to 1.6 just to get it over with. This one is a big thumbs down for me.

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!

Too political

Love the overall message but the continuous inserts and liberalism stopped me from finishing. I agree with every point but man... keep your philosophy of politics to a minimum

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.

Wonderful invitation to the Easy Yoke. Great presentation of research, contributing to a compelling argument for shedding hurry and all it's residue. Loved this book!
