Product Description

Unburdened won't teach you how to avoid responsibility or hide from serious issues. Neither is it about how to escape and go live on a beach-though having a couple of palm trees around never hurts. It's about taking the burdens you currently carry and making them much, much lighter. It's about transferring the weight of your responsibilities from the weak shoulders of your flesh to the strong fingertips of God. It's about learning to live in deep-down, heart-level freedom. And no one who reads Unburdened will walk away unchanged.

Publisher's Description

In his Word, God promises us freedom from worry. Wouldn’t it be nice if we actually believed him? What would happen if you took the concerns that grip you, that keep you awake at night, that clench your stomach in knots . . . and truly handed them over to his keeping?
Like no other writer can do, best-selling author Chris Tiegreen opens your eyes and heart to a better, more weightless way to live. Unburdened won’t teach you how to avoid responsibility or hide from serious issues. Neither is it about how to escape and go live on a beach—though having a couple of palm trees around never hurts. It’s about taking the burdens you currently carry and making them much, much lighter. It’s about transferring the weight of your responsibilities from the weak shoulders of your flesh to the strong fingertips of God. It’s about learning to live in deep-down, heart-level freedom. And no one who reads Unburdened will walk away unchanged.

We all worry. Most of us remember that Jesus tells us that we should not worry, and that we should consider the birds and the flowers when we are tempted to be anxious. Many of us believe Jesus’ words about anxiety on the Sermon on the Mount are divinely inspired wisdom. Deep down we also believe that living a life without worry is completely unattainable and unrealistic. Chris Tiegreen in his book Unburdened teaches otherwise. As a matter of fact, Unburdened teaches us very thoroughly that living a life free of concerns and burdens is central to being a disciple of Christ.

Unburdened has a very intentional structure. The first few chapters deal with behaviors and attitudes that need to be relinquished. Slowly, the author moves the reader toward surrendering the stresses, bondage, and burdens that the world offers and taking on commitment of a consuming trust in Christ. After that, Tiegreen challenges the reader to take on practices that will assist them in living the unburdened life. In the process, the rhythm of the book helps the reader move from a self-centered way of living to a Christ-centered way of living.

Tiegreen convincingly yet subtly makes the point that living a "burdened" life is living a life worshiping false idols. We must yield power and control of our lives to God if we are to truly experience his peace and his blessing. At one point Tiegreen even says, "Worry doesn’t reflect who God actually is; it is a form of anti-worship, a form of lying about Him" (p. 32).

The nice thing about Unburdened is that it is down-to-earth, real, and authentic. Tiegreen does not write this book from an ivory tower. Instead, the book is written with humility and grace, and a hopeful call is extended to the reader to move toward a better life. That better life is the life that Jesus truly intended to give us through his life, death, and resurrection.

I was moved to look at Scripture and my faith in a new light after reading this book. I hope many more people will find this book, and allow God to touch their hearts the way mine was. – Clint Walker, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    This book was written to help a person deepen their trust in God. In all of life's burdens that come our way, we often try to deal with them and solve them on our own. Tiegreen sets out to help those who are troubled to trust in God and bring all of their burdens, worries, problems to Him. In doing so, God does not necessarily completely remove the problem, but he does lighten the load that is carried. Tiegreen writes that God did not create us to be weighted down with the cares of this life but instead that we are designed to live with hearts that are free to soar, free to enjoy, free to dream. He encourages the reader to cast all of their cares on God and in doing so, God will lighten those burdens by His strength.The author explores what kinds of burdens we carry, where they come from and why we try to carry them on our own. He then explains our need to trust in God and the benefits that we can reap when we do so. Trust results in a release from the burdens and a closer relationship with God. This gives us a passion for the Lord, a new perspective on life's worries and cares, a reason to worship and praise God with gratitude, and the presence of God in our lives.This book would be very helpful for a person who is struggling with life's worries and cares. Someone who is dealing with stress, financial concerns, marital problems, anything that life throws our way.I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers to read and review.

    Do you feel like life has got a hold of you and is pulling you deeper and deeper under it's surface? In the bible, God promised us all the freedom from having to ever worry again , what do you think life would be like if you believed in the word?Unburdened - Chris Tiegreen -2010Thank you to Tyndale Publishers .How would you feel if all those worries, pains and problems that have been holding you back or that you are experiencing , went "poof" and disappeared forever ? How would your life be then, would you be able to go out and experience more and place all your worries with God ? Author Chris Tiegreen brings together a good study guide to how to let God take care of your worries and let you live life with ease so that you may never again have to worry about those sleepless nights of tossing and turning , those horrible little anxious butterflies that flutter around in your tummy or those panic attacks that some of us including me work ourselves into a tiny state. Unburdened is written in a way that everyone including non-christians can relate to with everyday examples to support his writings , one thing that I liked about Unburdened is that it teaches us not only to give God our worries but also how to cope with them and how to get rid of that chip growing on our shoulders."The only way to live an unburdened life -the one , take it or leave it, all or nothing way- is to actually let go of what we've been carrying and pick up a singular passion for God".Not only does Chris Tiegreen's book show us the way of being unburdened and lightening on load but also in the same process how to have a stronger and build a relationship with God that filled with passion and the holy spirit blazing through you soul"."It is one thing to say Jesus is living within us , but it is another to let Jesus live through us".

    This book came to me at one of the lowest times in my life. Looking for relief from the burdens that consumed me. Did it change my life? No, but helped me see things they way they really are. Living the Unburdened life means giving up self and handing it all over to God. Trusting Him when you do not want too. Chris Tiegreen does a wonderful job in getting to the root of the problem. The various types of trust. Why we seem to struggle with letting go. Reminding us that what we really want is a lighter load and not the unbearable weight we were never created to bear. This is a book worth reading. Preparing you in helping others or like me needing to understand the simple truth that I need to truly trust God in all things. Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.

    This is a very good book. I underlined passages all the way through it. Even as I read through Unburdened, I felt my understanding of God and His ways and my trust increase. I began to feel lighter and less burdened. I really do want to live that way. This book left me with a lot to chew on.A free review copy of this book was provided to me by Tyndale House Publishers in order to write this review. All opinions are my own.
