Publisher's Description

Many of us are serving, and feel like we're sinking. We feel joyless, weary and burdened.

John Hindley shows how Jesus was telling the truth when he offered people an "easy yoke"—a way of serving him that is joyful and liberating. He explains why serving is so often joyless—and how our identity in Christ changes everything.

If you are serving, but sometimes feel as though you're sinking… you need this book!

If you know someone who has burn out, or is heading in that direction... they need this book too.

Serving with sinking...
• Is written in a personal, warm, gospel-hearted style.
• Encourages readers to see not only how they serve, but WHY they serve
• Points Christians away from themselves and back to Jesus
• Frees people from the burdens of joyless, duty-based serving

Editorial Reviews

As I was reading Serving Without Sinking I found myself in conversations with some of the very people it addresses--people who serve their church and who love to serve, but who are also growing weary. It was a joy to recommend the book to them and I anticipate that it will be a great blessing to them. And to you.
I am so glad someone wrote this book. It is easy for church service to degenerate into a burdensome exercise in works righteousness—here is good news for anyone who wants to avoid betterness or burn-out. I’m commending this to every elder, deacon and ministry elder in our congregation.
Serving without sinking is an important book and a necessary one. It exposes how driven we can be (at times subtly) – even in the name of God-honouring ministry.
This new book is seriously one of the most important books I’ve read. It is deeply, simply, and accurately theological. Serving without Sinking by John Hindley is liberating and empowering because it points above all to God’s grace in Jesus. It honours Christ by focusing on him, rather than you and I.
Written with excellent biblical insights, the book exposes our wrong motives for serving, points us back to our Lord Jesus, and then wonderfully inspires us to serve him with ongoing joy. The tone is warm, the illustrations are both personal and applicable, and the style is so accessible. I'm thankful for renewed joy in serving Jesus after reading this book, and I thoroughly commend it.
If, like me, you don’t read books much and get bogged down with Christian service, this book will help you smile. Not just because it is enjoyable, contemporary and biblical, but because it reminds us that we are served by Jesus, who—as our Master, Friend, Husband and Brother—gives us every reason not to sink, but to smile.
An utterly liberating, joy-giving book—and a really fun read. This book opens us up, exposing the problems that cripple our Christian lives, and then applies the healing balm of God’s grace. It’s a book every Christian should read—you’ll thank John for writing it.
This fresh, warm, honest, book did me good. It is richly filled with grace, informed by a gritty realism, and shot through with pastoral perceptiveness. There is something in it for every Christian man and woman at every stage of life.
Buy it! Read it! Pass it on! The open heart surgery at the start is painful but necessary. After that, the route to joyful service is focussed entirely on Jesus' service of us, and will transform the way you think about your own service. I wish I'd read this book 20 years ago!
If you long to serve Jesus joyfully but don’t know how… if serving God feels exhausting rather than restful… this book will help you rediscover his love, enable you to enjoy his goodness, and excite you about serving him.
As I was reading Serving Without Sinking I found myself in conversations with some of the very people it addresses—people who serve their church and who love to serve, but who are also growing weary. It was a joy to recommend the book to them and I anticipate that it will be a great blessing to them. And to you.
This book is warm, personal, pastoral and practical. It is searching and Christ exalting. It will change your life and help you to change the lives of others. Highly recommended.
