A must read for every busy mom, dad, teen, young adult. If you "burn your candle at both ends" - even sometimes...you need to read this book. If you "live for the weekend", can't wait for vacation or holiday break...only to dread going back to the "real world", you need to read this book. You need MARGIN.Margin = it's what is missing in your life.
This book is a must reading for every over-stressed American! My husband uses "Margins" when teaching his course on "The Principles of Christian Leadership" to graduate students at the East Asia School of Theology, so it also communicates well cross-culturally. If you want to understand why you feel so over-the-top in every area of your life, and how to get a handle on them (for example: finances, physical energy, etc.) this is the book for you!
Richard Swenson serves as a "prophetic physician" with the insights he provides in this title and its follow-up book "Overcoming Overload." Although he is a medical practitioner, his thoughts here transcend medicine and offer Divine refreshment for the exhausted spirit of individuals in the 21st century. As the title suggests, the key idea presented is "margin." The author defines margin, then describes its vital nature for various areas of human life.I strongly and highly recommend this book to all busy Christians, which means just about every believer. Even non-Christians will find a great deal of helpful information. For me, this one is a keeper!
