The Busy Christian's guide to Busyness, Tim Chester

I joked to wife on reading this book that it took me rather longer than it should to read a relatively small volume, 179pages - "I was too busy." I guess that is the complaint of many today. Certainly it is an issue that I am finding more now nearly 20 years in to the ministry than I did when I started. It seems to be the daily cry of the majority of believers - too busy. Though there is much to help in a practical way in this volume this is no do it yourself guide to relieving the busyness. Chester goes much deeper analysing in the latter half of the book why we are so busy and just can't seem to say no to the boss. What is particularly helpful is the Biblical meditation at the end of the key chapters.
This is a must if you are starting out in working like, caught in the middle or ticking off the days to retirement which I am reliable informed are busier than ever.
I wish I could get my hands on a box of these. I think I could get rid of them very quickly.
