Description

New York Times bestselling author Jefferson Bethke delivers a call to resist our cultural worship of connectivity and achievement before we lose the essentials that make us distinctly and deeply human.

Our culture makes constant demands of us. Do more. Accomplish more. Buy more. Post more. Tweet more. And in following those demands, we have indeed become more--more anxious, more tired, more hurt, more depressed, more frantic. What we are doing isn't working because, Jefferson Bethke argues, we have forgotten the fundamentals that make us human, the things that anchor our lives, providing us with roots and meaning.

In this highly anticipated new book, Jefferson Bethke delivers a wake-up call to resist our culture and embrace the slowness of Jesus. To stop doing and start becoming by proactively setting up boundaries in our lives and cultivating disciplines within them. He shows his readers how to find landmarks, anchors, and rhythms that provide depth and meaning and that push back against the demands of contemporary life. And he reveals that what the world teaches us to avoid at all costs--things such as silence, obscurity, solitude, and vulnerability--are the very things that can give us the meaning, depth, order, and the richness we are truly looking for.

LIFE CHANGING BOOK

I honestly have struggled with finding the words to accurately explain how life giving and eye opening this book is for our culture. It's like God spoke directly to Jeff and gave him a very clear, major pain point in our culture in general, but more specifically in the lives of Christians. The book is also so practical and really helps you start the steps to start weeding out the cultural lies that we believe that our phones, money, and success will lead us to happiness. Don't miss out on these truths!

Wow. This book was incredible. From someone who has constantly been chasing after the busy life, I was challenged in so many ways by Jeff to look at my life and show me that the hustle life was not always the good life. There's a lot of joy that can be found in just slowing down and watching the birds. It's so easy for the hustle life, my job, or other things to become an idol. Much appreciation to Jeff for writing a book that hit this girl right in the heart in the time she needed it most. My worth is not found in how much I Hustle.

If you don’t have time to read this book...you need to make time to read this book! Jeff is so skilled at taking biblical concepts and making them applicable in our crazy busy world. If you feel like you’re drowning or running on fumes, doing everything and nothing, I implore you to pick up a copy as soon as you can! It has already changed my life for the better and I can’t wait to read it again.

You know a book is powerful, when the title alone convicts you... This book is exactly what we needed in this time of glorified hustle. Filled with facts that are shared in a grace-filled and informative way, Jeff equips and empowers us to take a second look at how we are truly designed to operate in the day-to-day life. 10/10 must read.

WARNING - this book is a page turner. You will not want to put it down. I had to pace myself because I didn't want it to end too quickly. You will want to talk about it with everyone. You will mull over Jeff's many mind-blowing points for days. Maybe longer. If you know you're living at a crazy, frantic pace - read this book. If you think that you're not tired, that you're not hustling, that the pace you're living is normal...this book is still for you. Jeff brings awareness to habits and time-wasters that many of us don't realize we've adopted. Things that we've accepted as "the way it is" or "the cultural norm." I don't think that calling this book life-changing is an exaggeration by any stretch of the imagination. If you're still questioning this purchase, let me tell you that - even though I've finished reading it - I still carry this book around in my purse because I reference it so frequently in daily conversation that it's easier to have it on hand so I don't misquote anything. I will be recommending and gifting this book to anyone and everyone.

Relevant, Informative, Jesus-Centered

Jefferson's "Why I Hate Religion but Love Jesus" YouTube video is a big part of my family's faith story. We have been following Jeff and his family ever since and love the relevant, yet challenging content they throw into the ring of our culture. Bringing us back to Jesus, when the current is pulling us everywhere else. This book will not disappoint you! Jeff has obviously done his research on how our society has evolved into its overconnected, overworked state. With wisdom, he points out how this is wreaking havoc on our souls and points us back to rhythms and formations that will bring us back to our First Love, Jesus.

This book is amazing from cover to cover. It was engaging and really helped me see what's important and how to set the right pace for my life to have deeper, more meaningful relationships, not what our culture says we need. As a society we have normalized busyness so much so that we don't even realize the escalating effects it's having on us. Jeff did another outstanding job with this one!
