Publisher's Description

Today we live with a false separation between sacred and secular that was never meant to be. Work, paying bills, changing diapers . . . when Jesus enters any situation He makes even the most mundane things extraordinary.

Boring enlivens this truth as author Michael Kelley challenges readers: we can give ourselves to ordinary life—parenting, marriage, work—because we fully believe in God's presence and power within those situations. They are no longer boring, but important.

On every page, Michael’s writing provides biblical truth that is relatable and engaging to everyone. You’ll begin to see every day at work, every relationship, and every moment for what it is: a part of God's exciting plan for your life.

Editorial Reviews

If you've lost the sense of how powerfully present God is in the ordinary, then this book was written just for you. Read this and move beyond life-as-usual to life with an extraordinary God. You'll learn that there really is no such thing as ordinary.

For every office employee who questions, "Does what I'm doing even matter?" For every student who wonders, "Will I ever make a difference in this world?" For every parent who asks, "Does anyone even care about this?" For all of you who look at your lives and think, "Is this all that there is?" This is your book. Read it; spend time with it; share it; read it again. God is "in" a lot more than we realize, sovereignly "building the city" through the most mundane of tasks (Ps. 127:1-3).

Can passion and purpose be found in that which seems mind-numbingly mundane? In a word: yes. And when you read Boring, you'll see how our extraordinary God makes that possible!
