Product Description

Screens connect us 24/7-and we've never been lonelier. The average American spends nine hours a day in the screen world. Heavy screen users are experiencing an epidemic of anxiety, isolation, and suicidal thoughts. The more time we devote to screen life, the more difficult real life becomes. Bestselling author David Murrow is a screen-industry insider who shows us the way back to balance. His new book is based on five simple parables that explain how and why screens grab our attention and won't let go. Drowning in Screen Time is not about becoming a digital hermit. It's a practical guide that can help anyone find screen life-real life balance again.

Publisher's Description


Between Zoom meetings, online classes, social media, gaming, and binge-watching TV series, humans now spend most of their free time submerged in screen life—and that’s taking a toll on real life.

The good news: there is a way back. Bestselling author David Murrow’s new book is a rescue plan for parents, adults, teachers, and ministers who want to help others (or themselves) achieve screen-life/real-life balance.

Built around five simple parables, Drowning in Screen Time shows you:

• What screens are doing to your family and relationships

• Why screen content is so addictive

• How to find freedom and confidence in real life

Drowning in Screen Time is full of positive, practical ideas that can help you keep your digital head above water.

Editorial Reviews

"Drowning in Screen Time shows us why modern life leaves us frantically treading water and gasping for air. This book is the life preserver we've desperately needed!"

TIERCE, GREEN, director of the Authentic Manhood Initiative and co-presenter of 33 The Series
"David Murrow has a gift for addressing current issues that matter and offering solutions that work. He’s done it again with Drowning in Screen Time. This book will leave you informed, alarmed, and inspired to take immediate action."

RICHARD BLACKABY, co-author of Experiencing God and Spiritual Leadership
"What if you could wave a magic wand and find an extra twelve hours per week? David Murrow can show you how. Dave was drowning in screen time, got rescued, and recovered an astonishing twelve hours per week. He’s become one of America’s leading experts on one of the most compelling problems facing this generation and wrote a book!

"Drowning in Screen Time is a spectacular tour de force that blends parables, data, case studies, stunning personal vulnerability, and so many practical suggestions that there’s something here for everyone—parent, teacher, pastor, counselor, gamer, addict, worker—you name it. I highly recommend this book, and if you’re a parent, it’s must-reading."

PATRICK MORLEY, PH.D., author of the bestselling book Man in the Mirror with four million copies in print
"David Murrow digs deep and pulls back the covers to reveal what’s really happening when we get lost in our screens. This book is an urgent and needed wake-up call for all who value the soul and deep relationships."

KENNY LUCK, ECPA Platinum Award–winning author, founder of Every Man Ministries, and author of Dangerous Good: The Coming Revolution of Men Who Care
"If you have teenagers, they have cell phones and computers. If they have cell phones and computers, they are addicted. If they are addicted, you want to help them, and David Murrow has written just the book we need just when we needed it!"

BRAD STINE, stand-up comedian known as "God’s Comic"
"I have not met one parent, youth leader, or teacher who doesn’t think screen time is one of the major issues of our day. We must figure out how to create a media-safe home. David Murrow has written a well-researched and important book to help us make better decisions and teach our children to do the same."

JIM BURNS, PH.D., president of HomeWord and author of Doing Life with Your Adult Children: Keep Your Mouth Shut and the Welcome Mat Out
