Summary

I’m too busy. We’ve all heard it, we’ve all said it. Sometimes being busy seems like the theme of our lives. Yet this frenetic pace poses a serious threat to our physical, social, and even spiritual well-being. In this mercifully short book about a really big problem, best-selling author Kevin DeYoung rejects the "busyness as usual" mindset, arguing that a life of constant chaos is far from what God intends. DeYoung helps us figure out a better way forward as he strikes a mature and well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing everything. With his usual warmth, humor, and honesty, DeYoung deftly attacks the widespread "crazy busy" epidemic and offers up the restful cure we’ve all been too busy to find.

Great book!

Good reminder of what we ought to be busy with and what we ought to set aside. Good reminder that the Kingdom doesn't rise or fall on what I do or don't do. Thanks for the encouragement, Kevin!

A lot of help in a few pages

An easy to read, practical book to help those of us who seem to habitually overload our schedules. Why implementing the invoice found in this book I have been able to be more effective in my service for the Lord.

Worth every minute of my time!

Take the time to read this.. it highlights and puts into words lots of problems (and their consequences) christians encounter every day. The solution offered is as old as the world, but the book demonstrates well why we need it.

Helpful to think thru what makes us feel harried​.

This book was very helpful, and short enough to get through quickly. I'll be going through and highlighting the Kindle version.

Turning Crazy Busy into Purposed Driven Busy

Good life and Biblical illustrations of the core of our problems and challenges. Very practical.
