Publisher's Description

Changing “Love” from a Noun to a Verb

In our frantically driven, complex lifestyle, we suffer from fatigue, little margin, shallow relationships, and fractured families. As a result of this driven lifestyle, our souls are dis-eased—they have a lack of ease. This highly practical, comforting book maintains that it is possible to run the race at a different, more meaningful speed. Not only is it possible; it’s absolutely necessary.

The key to simplifying life, Chip Ingram says, is to make sure love is your #1 priority. Love redirects our focus and unravels the complex, overextended lifestyle that keeps us ever running but never arriving. In Spiritual Simplicity, Ingram explains how to change our love from a noun to a verb and choose to concentrate on what really matters: the people we love the most.

Each chapter ends with probing questions to help you process, ponder, and discuss the life-giving principles laid out in this desperately needed book.

***

 If you crave simplicity, yearn for peace and calm, this book is for you. Through biblical teaching and practical insights, author Chip Ingram goes beyond so-called quick fixes and speaks to men and women who know what they need to do, want desperately to do it, but find it next to impossible to break free of the too many good and important things that flood their lives.

The thesis of this book is very simple: Spiritual simplicity will never be achieved by strategic, managerial attempts to control our lives and schedules but through doing less because we love more. As you learn the practice of loving people, you will experience a shift from complex to simple, from hurried to peaceful, from “never enough time” to “time enough for those you love.” Lasting change is within your reach.

Editorial Reviews

"A lot of books give long checklists of things to do that can decrease stress and increase productivity. Chip’s book, however, challenges that mentality by suggesting one thing: reorient your life around love. The result is a life whose priorities are so radically rearranged that the goal is actually achieved."

    Very thought-provoking and challenging

    I have heard of Chip Ingram's ministry "Living on the Edge," so when I saw his name on a book, I thought I might would give it a chance. I liked the title and the look of the book. It was very simple, which kept with the theme of the book.

    My favorite part of this book were the three questions that he challenged his readers to ponder on concerning what is our view of success.

    1. Instead of asking "How did I do?", we should ask "Who am I becoming?"

    2. Instead of asking "What do I have?", we should ask "How am I using it?"

    3. Instead of asking "How much do I give?", we should ask "Why do I give it?"

    These were some very thought-provoking and were questions that I would love for my children to grow up asking themselves. I don't want them to look at themselves, but look to God and I feel that's what these questions do. He mentions putting them on index cards for a few weeks, but I think I want to make them a little bit more permanent in our house and write it on canvas as a reminder to us of what success should be.

    Chip serves as pastor in Los Gatos, California and his congregation knows something about the world's view of success. It's a very fast-paced place where people go to work early, come home late, eat dinner in the car on the way to dropping kids off at ballgames/practices....sound familiar? I think it describes where we all live.

    This book is very relevant to everyone and is challenging to make relationships a priority. It's a reminder about how we are called to love...which can't be done if we are not relational people. The book covers loving those who are lovable to those who aren't so lovable. At times, I felt very convicted and it has caused me to think on these points even after I have finished this book.
