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.

    "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.

    "Exceptional! Desperately needed message..."

    Needed message. Slow down and walk with Jesus! The author does a good job of helping us see our need and offers practical application.
