Publisher's Summary

The only deadly sin that is not a sin of commission. 

Sloth, or laziness, is not something we do; rather, it’s NOT doing something we should that makes it so sinful. The Latin words “tristitia” or “acedia” mean “without care.” When we stop caring, things go wrong. How come laziness is so destructive, especially when we are not actually doing something wrong?

What does the Bible say about sloth? Is it even mentioned there?

Is there such a thing as “good laziness?”

What modern-age faces of sloth do we get confronted with? 

How do we avoid becoming lazy, especially when it has become easier to give up and miss out on life? 

In holy writ, life is sometimes referred to as a spiritual war. This analogy can have a lasting effect on our attitude. When we look at it this way, we must figure out how to become a better soldier for the right cause, and to actively get engaged in good projects and activities that make the world a better place. This is exactly the kind of thinking you will learn about when you pick up this audiobook. It will help you avoid excuses, see the sin of sloth for what it really is, and motivate you to become a better person.

Don't be lazy!

I see it all around me and I am glad my dad (workaholic) taught me some basic principles of hard work. There lies a balance in that too, though. Working too hard can be detrimental too.

Pretty good

I thought this was going to be a boring lecture about not being lazy, but in fact, I was amazed at the scriptures, Bible verses, and other quotes the author got into this. Moreover, his comments were pretty smart as well. Nice for self reflection.

For the lazy

I felt kind of lazy when I lay on my back listening to this book about being lazy. But sloth is so much more, it's an addictive attitude of not being passionate to accomplish or give back anything in life. It was an interesting analysis of this one of the seven sins.

The deadly sins

I like the quotes, the bible verses and the anecdotes and personal stories Christian tells in his book about sloth, i.e. laziness. Nice cover with the chair.

Slothfulness

Muahahaha! Don't you love the condemnation books? Christian Vandergroot has one good series. But they teach you something too. I think I felt it.

Nice!

I enjoyed the book, and I am a devout Christian who is always looking for Bible analyses like this one.

I never looked at it that way

The author has some good points, and even though I have been a Christian all my life, I am still learning new things from this.

I like all of Christian's books

Christian Vandergroot (probably a Dutch name) is a great writer. He's pondered all the most important aspects of the Bible and the daily living the Gospel and Bible teachings.

I am not lazy!

This book is telling people... well, that they need to balance out their lives. Personally, I am more of a work addict, so I guess I am fine.

I am sending this book to some of my family member

Man, I wish they would listen to something like this. They just hang around the house, never help out, don't respond when you ask them something. The sin of sloth is probably more prevalent in the 21st century than ever before.
