Product Description

"I am a recovering speed addict."

Beginning with this confession, pastor and spiritual director Alan Fadling goes on to describe his journey out of the fast lane and into the rhythms of Jesus.

Following the framework of Jesus' earthly life, Fadling shows how the work of "unhurrying" ourselves is central to our spiritual development in such pivotal areas as resisting temptation, caring for others, praying and making disciples.

Here is a book that affirms that we are called to work and to do work. Productivity is not a sin-it is the attitudes behind our work that can be our undoing. So how do we find balance between our sense of calling and the call to rest? An Unhurried Life offers a way.

Endorsements

Every once in a while there is a book that I can honestly say, 'That book changed my life!' An Unhurried Life has been added to my very short list. Alan Fadling has helped me see in a practical, convicting and motivating manner that there is a depth waiting for me when I slow down and walk with Jesus. I knew it all along...but Alan has helped me long for it. In an overcommitted and underconnected culture, people need this message. I did!
-Doug Fields,
coauthor of Purpose-Driven Youth Ministry and executive director of Homeword Center for Youth/Family

Greatness of soul requires an unhurried life. In this book, a fellow struggler shows us how Jesus lived a relaxed life that opens us up to truly loving and knowing others. This book is a perfect follow-up to Eugene Peterson's classic work The Contemplative Pastor.
-Jan Johnson,
author of Abundant Simplicity

An Unhurried Life unearths our idol of efficiency and the incessant struggle to catch up, keep up and stay up with the velocity of our high-energy world. Fadling invites us into a countercultural way of being present to God and one another.
-Stephen A. Macchia,
author of Crafting a Rule of Life

Alan Fadling has written a magnificent book that is timely and enduring. It may even become a spiritual classic...In reading his profound, accessible and challenging words, I became deeply aware of God's gentle invitation to a fuller, less hurried life in the imitation of Christ. As you pick up this book, I urge you to slow, read, savor and be changed in companionship with your unhurried Savior.
-L. Paul Jensen,
executive director of The Leadership Institute
