Publisher's Summary

Habits form us more than we form them. The modern world is a machine of 1,000 invisible habits, forming us into anxious, busy, and depressed people. We yearn for the freedom and peace of the gospel but remain addicted to our technology, shackled by our screens, and exhausted by our routines. But because our habits are the water we swim in, they are almost invisible to us. What can we do about it? 

The answer to our contemporary chaos is to practice a rule of life that aligns our habits to our beliefs. The Common Rule offers four daily and four weekly habits, designed to help us create new routines and transform frazzled days into lives of love for God and neighbor. Justin Earley provides concrete, doable practices, such as a daily hour of phoneless presence or a weekly conversation with a friend. These habits are “common” not only because they are ordinary, but also because they can be practiced in community. They have been lived out by people across all walks of life - businesspeople, professionals, parents, students, retirees - who have discovered new hope and purpose. 

As you embark on these life-giving practices, you will find the freedom and rest for your soul that comes from aligning belief in Jesus with the practices of Jesus.

Well worth the time!

Great perspectives to consume, well done! Have certainly garnered a new perspective and will strive to incorporate these habits into my life. I plan to have my whole family read or listen.

Love the book! Narrator... eh.

The habits discussed here are great! Love his ideas, including the practical “how to implement for your situation” sections in each chapter. The narrator is somewhat monotonous in the rise and fall of his voice, thus the 4-star review.
