Publisher's Summary

Largely due to overwork and the stresses of modern life, men in work and ministry are increasingly run down, anxious, and depressed. But is this level of physical and spiritual weariness inevitable?

Just as a car needs to be regularly refueled, retuned, and repaired in order to keep running, a balanced life can be sustained only when a man takes proper steps to stay on track. In this hopeful book, experienced pastor and counselor David Murray shares stories from his own life and the lives of friends, offering Gospel-centered advice for avoiding, assessing, and recovering from burnout. With chapters on rest, relationships, routines, and more, this book lays out a host of practical remedies men can use to reset their lives on a more sustainable course - resulting in renewed energy, joy, and purpose.

a challenge for those who live in quiet desperatio

excellent consideration for us who still equate more work with more grace. I appreciated hearing the narraration bu the author but sometimes the thickness of the brogue was a challenge.
