Publisher's Description

Overthrowing Your Empire of Noise
Noise. It’s everywhere. Televisions blaring out commercials. Opinions shouted over the radio. The Internet and its unlimited distractions. All of the tasks and choices that you know don't really matter. Always intensifying, becoming a deep part of our everyday cycle, our now hurried lives. 
 
But often God speaks to us in the stillness. When Elijah needed to hear from God, God sent a fire, a quake, and a huge wind. But God wasn’t in the fire. He wasn’t in the quake. He wasn’t in the wind. God was in the whisper. But the noise hides the whisper.
 
Life is a dangerous place when we are stripped of our ability to hear God clearly.
 
During His time here on earth Jesus Christ was a master of noise. He balanced time healing, teaching, and feeding the multitudes with regular periods alone with His Father. Static Jedi takes a look at the life of Jesus to help you master the noise and distractions and live in clarity.

Author Bio

Eric Samuel Timm is a communicator, author, artist, and founder of the ministry No One Underground and the nonprofit Painting Hope. As he speaks and paints, Eric captivates his audiences with his unique teaching style and unforgettable live art performances. He is highly sought after for his ability to creatively and relevantly present messages from God’s Word in challenging and traditional environments.

Editorial Reviews

"Despite its offbeat title, Timm’s book prescribes straightforward applications of classic spiritual disciplines for a new generation and deserves attention for its punchy prose and use of intentionally choppy syntax to jar the reader as he accurately diagnoses humanity’s addiction to noise, distraction, and static. The author dares the average Christian to instead master the noise, seek clarity, follow Jesus, and become a “static Jedi.” With a no-nonsense approach, highly relevant cultural references, and personal anecdotes and illustrations, the book advocates morning devotion, solitary retreat, Scripture memorization, fasting, and ongoing discipleship to help readers “master the static” like Jesus did. The injunctions are practical but challenging, motivational and mystical, and at times go beyond stimulating to being onerous. Timm asks readers to “do the natural” as Jesus does the “super,” but much of the book is focused on the actions of the devotee, not the Deity. Those looking to mirror Jesus’ spiritual discipline and to find clarity in the clamor of the modern world have a good resource in Timm’s book." Publishers Weekly (Sept.)

    We are surrounded by noise. Television, Internet, smart phones. We spend hours a day on noise. How much time do we spend on clarity, time devoted to things that change us, grow us, and draw us to be more like Christ?

    Eric is concerned. "The noise is focused on eroding the soul," he writes. (12) He wants each of us to become a Static Jedi - one who masters the noise.

    He asks us to consider the time we spend on the noise and the reward we receive from it. Is it worth it? What if we got up early to pray, intentionally spent time with Jesus all day, and got back into the Bible? Would it be worth the reward? "We need to love Jesus more than the noise," he argues. (43)

    He gives us two foundation points to stand on: God is a being Who wants you to know Him personally, and He has no grandchildren (you must know Him yourself). Using the example of Jesus as the Static Master, Eric suggests five keys: rise early, withdraw, memorize God's Word, fast, and disciple. "The Static Master rose early, withdrew for prayer, knew the Word, fasted, and chose and nurtured disciples. Go and do the same." (135)

    Eric points out that becoming a Static Master is a never ending process but to kick start it he suggests a challenge. Stand on the two foundation stones and practice the five keys for a week. The goal is to live completely free of our noise (cell phone, Internet - anything with a battery). "Are we made of noise, or are we becoming more like Jesus?" he asks. (99)

    Eric longs to see a movement of Christ followers, "rise above fast and easy microwave Christianity with a decompartmentalized, committed life that makes Jesus a part of every moment." (144)

    Teens and young adults would like this book, I think. Eric has an intense and choppy feel to his writing that would appeal to young people. He has included questions at the end of each chapter, some for personal reflection and others for group discussion. This would make a great study for a teen or career age discussion group.

    I keep coming back to the question Eric asks, "Are we made of noise, or are we becoming more like Jesus?" Which are you?

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

    Our family started reading "Static Jedi" as a devotional. Eric Samuel Timm handles what could be a guilt-evoking, never-going-to-win subject (How do YOU spend your time? What are you INVESTING in?!) with humor and candid transparency. EST uses imagery that helps the us to understand what we are doing, sometimes without even meaning to do so. However this book doesn't leave the reader once the problem is identified. Static Jedi helps us to see what the issue is and how to tackle it. Each chapter ends with questions for the reader to personally tackle, and a set of questions to discuss with a group. As a family we needed to spend time together, involved in what matters, but hadn't been able to see what was holding us back. In addition, each of us as individuals needed to make adjustments to how we spend the "currency of our lives," time, so that it is more intentional. Great wake-up call! The humor?! Well, with teenage boys in the house, we're hearing some of EST's funny tag lines over, and over again. Great way to invest in each other and draw closer to Jesus. Highly recommend for people of all ages, groups, and families. :)
