Publisher's Summary

The 2014 Christianity Today Book Award of Merit Winner (Spirituality)" I am a recovering speed addict." Beginning with this confession, pastor and spiritual director Alan Fadling goes on to describe his journey out of the fast lane and into the rhythms of Jesus. Following the framework of Jesus' earthly life, Fadling shows how the work of "unhurrying" ourselves is central to our spiritual development in such pivotal areas as resisting temptation, caring for others, praying and making disciples. Here is a book that affirms that we are called to work and to do work. Productivity is not a sin - it is the attitudes behind our work that can be our undoing. So how do we find balance between our sense of calling and the call to rest? An Unhurried Life offers a way.

I will listen again & again!

Oh. THIS TEACHING...how it blessed my soul. I usually prefer reading books so I can highlight, tab and make notes, but listening as I learned to slowly stroll on my dog walks was rejuvenating and life giving. This teaching will be one I come back to often, as implementing the truths help me to die more to self every day.

Eternal Life Begins Now

Helpful to exploring what it means to live life in the Kingdom now, at the pace that Jesus did. Eternal life begins now as the author reminds us, and from that vantage point we can live life unhurriedly, not worried that we are somehow missing out, but exploring the depths of live lives in the presence of Jesus.

This Book Deserves Your Time

This audio book deserves your time and attention. Fadling does an excellent job of weaving personal stories, sculptural narrative, and practical application to present his concept of an unhurried life. Also, the narration by Bloodworth is excellent and clear at 1.5 speed.

Life changer

I will have to read, highlight, and note the text of the book along with this audio in order to soak it all in. It was a wealth of information on how to slow down and what to prune spiritually. It is challenging many people that I know who are in ministry to be present for the opportunity to be God's hands and feet.
