    This book is not very long AND can be read rather quickly. That may be why I didn't get that much out of this book. For me, I found his "perscriptions" to be more theorecical than practical. I'm sure others will read it and come away with the opposite feeling.

    In 25 years of pastoral ministry, I have never seen as much hyperactivity among God's people as I do today. As ministers we share a substantial portion of the blame, working long hours and even experiencing burnout in an attempt to be all things to all people at all times. Swenson's words here are a breath of fresh air to Christians and churches alike who find themselves suffocating beneath unrealistic schedules and expectations. The author begins by defining overload and emphasizing the reality of human limitations. He then lists several varieties of overload in our society, and offers prescriptions on how to cure each of them. Swenson is not only a professing Christian, but also a practicing physician. The cures offered here are not so much for the body as they are for the heart, soul and mind.For me, this book is a definite keeper. I'm recommending it to other church leaders who think busyness is akin to godliness. As Swenson expresses here time and time again, just the opposite is true. Busyness is the enemy of godliness.If you feel you have too many "irons in fire" at home, at work, at school or at church, this book will bring order and renewal to the midst of the chaos. Try it -- you'll see!
