By Michael Taylor TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 5, 2007
Format: Paperback
I read this booklet as part of a Wednesday night Bible study at my church and thorougly enjoyed the title. The author's premise is that we Christians have much too often allowed the world to dictate its hurry up, busy, and too intense lifestyle to us. Admittingly, the premise has proven to be true in my own life more than I'd like to admit.

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.

Highly recommended!

The book is divided into short lessons. I was really looking for more advice, but the book does ask thought provoking questions, which are somewhat helpful. It would probably be more useful to read the book as part of a study group, so that the topics could be discussed with others. I am still reading it, so I may have more insight later.

Really encouraging because we as people have freewill to cutback in work,finances, and thus have more time for God, Family, Rest, etc. Thanks Mike. This study might transform myself and my family. Praise the Lord.
