Publisher's Description

Who Is Stealing Your Time?

Each day, there are things you know you have to do. Then there are things you really ought to do, plus things you desperately want to do. But how do we find time for it all? Stuart Briscoe, former senior pastor of Elmbrook Church in Brookfield, Wisconsin, presents an outstanding commentary on evaluating our priorities so that the concerns of this world do not rob us of our valuable time. Prioritizing our lives isn’t easy, particularly when we consider the conflict that can arise between doing what is good and being comfortable, popular, and profitable. But Briscoe calls Christians to boldly address any areas of selfishness and to begin to see life through kingdom eyes. When we do, our priorities will change to focus on goodness, righteousness, and truth.

"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness."

—Jesus (Matthew 6:33 )

It sounds great in theory to seek God’s kingdom first, but is it really feasible? So many things rob your precious time that you wonder if you can afford to bump everything else in your life to secondary status.

But this is not about prioritizing. This is a matter of heart. While you long for harmony in your harried schedule and significance amidst the busyness, God yearns to give them to you. Stuart Briscoe’s insights will guide you to the focused, fulfilling life you long for. Because once you begin seeking the Lord before all else, all else simply falls into place.

What are you waiting for? You have no time to waste.

Story Behind the Book

Stu Briscoe travels more than he is home, so time is a premium for him and his wife, Jill. He has found that the only way to stay focused on his life and ministry is to put first things first and not allow those things that attempt to steal his time to succeed. Upon further study, he has discovered that the right approach to managing his time and priorities is really to put the right things first. By putting God’s kingdom first and seeking His will, everything else falls naturally into place.

    This short book will help the seeker as well as maturing Christian refocus their walk on what is important. Through anecdotal stories, real life examples and Biblical reference, Time Bandits will cause one to mentally step back and have a series of 'ah, ha' moments during the read. At 92 pages, it is a fast read but the Holy Spirit will keep you interrupted by shining a light on your own Time Bandits. Enjoy!

    Lately, there seem to be many books focusing on the stewardship of time. This book by Stuart Briscoe is a quick, easy to follow read. Instead of asking readers to make a chart where they list all of their activities and then try to see what they would change, the author focuses on the spiritual aspect of time. The main text he uses is Matthew 6:25-34. Other passages of Scriptures are also used.

    To seek first God's Kingdom the author asserts that we must have our priorities focused on the kingdom. That means any anxieties, activities, or ambitions need to be adjusted and realigned. We must surrender our past, present and future to God. If we understand that God's kingdom takes precedence over all else, then we can trust that God will assist with our food, fashion (clothing), fitness, future, and finances.

    The author goes on to articulate that if we have experienced the Kingdom, then we need to express the kingdom (living out its righteousness) and help extend it (use your talents and gifts to help expand it).

    I think this book can be helpful to many people who want to 'redeem their time.'
