Publisher's Summary

Thousands of people leave Christian ministry every month. They have not lost their love for Christ or their desire to serve him. But for one reason or another, they are exhausted and simply cannot carry on.

Christopher Ash knows this experience all too well. As a pastor of a growing church, and then in his role training people for ministry, he has found himself on the edge of burnout a number of times and has pastored many younger ministers who have reached the ends of their tethers.

His wisdom has been distilled into this short, accessible audiobook, in which he reveals a neglected biblical truth and seven keys that flow from it. Understood properly, and built into our lives as Christians who are zealous to serve the Lord, they will serve to protect us from burnout and keep us working for God's kingdom and glory.

Well distilled advice for clergy or business professional

Christopher humbly presents well-distilled, Christ focused advice for those striving tirelessly to “do with all their might” what God has called them to. It is all too easy to lose balance and expend more than our earthbound frames can take. Chris’s advice on recognizing the difference between sacrifice and self-harm is excellent as are some ideas to find remedy per advice in Psalm 127:2 and other truths. As a business director myself, this work is excellent for godly CTOs, CEOs, and Pastors alike and possible to listen at 2X within 90 minutes ;-)

good practical advice

this book was a good companion to "crazy busy" by Kevin Deyoung. crazy busy focused more on Biblical principles, while zeal without burnout gave good practical advice, along with warning signs that you are beginning to burn out.

Practical and down to earth

A really helpful, honest, clear book on the subject of burnout. As someone who has suffered from burnout myself, I thought this was encouraging and a good introduction. Although as a short book it scratched the surface, I think that's what it was intending to do.

Unfortunate narration

The content of this book is really helpful but the narration is hugely distracting because it’s tone is stressful, taut, directive... I recommend reading rather than listening to this book.
