Top Customer Reviews
As with many other Christian-related studies, each chapter is divided into 5 short readings per week. In this case, the book is broken down into 4 chapters (5 studies each week making for a total of 20 readings):
1. The Bondage of Busyness.
2. Freedom Through Saying No.
3. Freedom Through Slowing Down.
4. Freedom Through Simple Living.
Instead of a list of specific antidotes for addressing the problem, Zigarelli presents principles and encourages the reader to think about the principle and how to apply to his/her own life. For example, in one of the short readings, Jesus is mentioned as having left a particular scene to escape and be alone with the Father. Conclusion and challenge: what things can you eliminate from your life that will allow you to slow down and enjoy more time alone with God?
I really enjoyed the book and will periodically refer to it and other references I have on the same subject. Read, enjoy, and be challenged and encouraged to eliminate unnecesary busyness from your life so you can enjoy a higher quality of life.
