Relevant writing

book cover

In an age when there are so many Christian books purporting to be relevant to the 21st century, or to the reality of our lives, this is the first book I've read that actually delivers. I would never have bought a book with this title unless it had been by Tim Chester. I suspect this is because I am a Christian snob, but thankfully my great respect for Tim Chester won over. This is the most beneficial book I have read this year. A perfect mix of big picture Christianity, and day-to-day practicalities (ala Proverbs). I thank God for this book.

Buy The busy Christian's guide to busyness from IVP, and read extracts here.

PS It's a mark of my pride that I can barely prevent myself slipping in that I am reading far more intelectual/leftish books at the moment too (e.g Walter Brueggemann) but you cannot argue with that which truly satisfies.
