Product Description

"I am a recovering speed addict."

Beginning with this confession, pastor and spiritual director Alan Fadling goes on to describe his journey out of the fast lane and into the rhythms of Jesus.

Following the framework of Jesus' earthly life, Fadling shows how the work of "unhurrying" ourselves is central to our spiritual development in such pivotal areas as resisting temptation, caring for others, praying and making disciples.

Here is a book that affirms that we are called to work and to do work. Productivity is not a sin-it is the attitudes behind our work that can be our undoing. So how do we find balance between our sense of calling and the call to rest? An Unhurried Life offers a way.

Endorsements

Every once in a while there is a book that I can honestly say, 'That book changed my life!' An Unhurried Life has been added to my very short list.

I knew it all along...but Alan has helped me long for it. In an overcommitted and underconnected culture, people need this message. I did!
-Doug Fields,
coauthor of Purpose-Driven Youth Ministry and executive director of Homeword Center for Youth/Family

Greatness of soul requires an unhurried life. In this book, a fellow struggler shows us how Jesus lived a relaxed life that opens us up to truly loving and knowing others. This book is a perfect follow-up to Eugene Peterson's classic work The Contemplative Pastor.
-Jan Johnson,
author of Abundant Simplicity

An Unhurried Life unearths our idol of efficiency and the incessant struggle to catch up, keep up and stay up with the velocity of our high-energy world. Fadling invites us into a countercultural way of being present to God and one another.
-Stephen A. Macchia,
author of Crafting a Rule of Life

It may even become a spiritual classic...In reading his profound, accessible and challenging words, I became deeply aware of God's gentle invitation to a fuller, less hurried life in the imitation of Christ. As you pick up this book, I urge you to slow, read, savor and be changed in companionship with your unhurried Savior.
-L. Paul Jensen,
executive director of The Leadership Institute

Editorial Reviews

"Can we gain inner peace and strength in our high-pressured, fast-paced lives? With insights and stories, Fadling, a spiritual director, demonstrates what it takes to experience empowered lives despite life's inevitable crises and urgent demands."
"Alan Fadling has written a magnificent book that is timely and enduring. It may even become a spiritual classic. . . . In reading his profound, accessible and challenging words, I became deeply aware of God's gentle invitation to a fuller, less hurried life in the imitation of Christ. As you pick up this book, I urge you to slow, read, savor and be changed in companionship with your unhurried Savior."
"Filled with underlineable sentences, penetrating questions, and appropriately disruptive insights, this book positions itself well for personal, staff, small group, or community discussion."
"This easy-to-read study on 'worship through rest' is excellent for mature Christians, especially for those involved in ministry. Written through the experiences of a pastor, it gives advice for counseling oneself, as well as others, to find a place in the slow lane and find God in silence and comfort."
"[Fadling's] approach is practical, eclectic, self-revealing, and rich in biblical allusions and applications. . . . the book integrates diverse resources in ways that may be useful to those seeking a manual for changing course."
