The basis of this book is that the busyness of modern life not only damages our physical and mental health, but also our spiritual lives and our relationship with God. His description of our slavery to the seven day week, social media and smart phone makes challenging and uncomfortable reading, but he offers a different way - the gentle yoke of Christ. Helpfully, he gives four ways which could help us to slow down and concentrate on what's important. To quote his mentor, John Ortberg, 'I cannot live in the Kingdom of God with a hurried soul.'

Who are you becoming? That was the question nagging pastor and author John Mark Comer. By outward metrics, everything 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 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 the pages of this book, you'll find a compelling emotional and spiritual case against hurry and in favour of a slower, simpler way of life.
