Throughout the course of our lives we assume many different roles and relationships—parent, professor, spouse, spiritual mentor, pastor, executive director. And in the midst of all we do, we're tempted to frantically take control of situations in hopes of making good things happen.
Alan Fadling, author of An Unhurried Life, proposes an alternative response in An Unhurried Leader, as he unfolds what it means for leaders to live an unhurried life at the pace of Jesus—a state of soul set by the pace of grace. Through biblical illustrations, personal examples, and on-the-ground leadership wisdom, Fadling guides you into a new view of kingdom leadership. For anyone in a place of influence—from parent to CEO to co-worker to pastor to neighbor—Fadling gently and graciously invites you into a less hurried and hectic and more fruitful and joyful leadership model that leads to an abundant and transformed life.

"As my own leadership responsibilities have significantly increased in recent years, I can only say 'many thanks!' to Alan for offering such a timely, rooted, and integrated vision of the very real possibilities that exist for leaders who choose an unhurried life. It's all true! And it's an ongoing pursuit, which is why his book is so helpful. Rich with practical examples of practices to support this way of life and leadership, An Unhurried Leader is a great guide for anyone who seeks to lead from a place of overflow rather than deficit."
—Mindy Caliguire, founder, Soul Care
"In An Unhurried Leader, Fadling uses the Bible to unpack the wisdom of choosing to be led by Jesus as we lead others, so that our pace, ways, and results align with God's will. This is a book I highly recommend to everyone who is intentional about joining God at work and working God's way."
—Jean Paul Ndagijimana, corporate chaplain, Lift Up Limited, Rwanda
"At the heart of Christian spirituality is love. Jesus instructed us to love God and our neighbor. Paul said the greatest virtue is love. But love takes time—and time is the one thing a hurried leader does not have. The results of unloving, anxious, fear-based Christian leadership are now all around us, as seen in the culture-wide rejection of church. In An Unhurried Leader, Alan Fadling points the way out of hurried leadership that kills the souls of leaders. He reveals leadership steeped in spiritual abundance and joy. This is not a how-to book. This book lays out a path to becoming a better sort of person, who is then naturally a better kind of leader."
Todd Hunter, Anglican bishop, author of Christianity Beyond Belief
"Alan set out to offer an inspiring vision of leadership that is less hurried and more fruitful, less hectic and more joyful—and that he did. With the biblical text as his consistent backdrop, each principle, practice, and suggested reflection creates a unique mosaic for every spiritual leader desirous of living an abundant life."
—Stephen A. Macchia, founder and president of Leadership Transformations, and author of Broken and Whole
"This book works! I began reading it hurriedly, but its soothing, consistent truth drew me to slow down and sense the presence of God."
—Jan Johnson, speaker, author of Abundant Simplicity and Meeting God in Scripture
"Alan Fadling has done it again! He writes in a way that challenges me to rethink my leadership. I love him and hate him at the same time for reminding me to love from an overflow and abundance rather than leading on empty. He doesn't just describe the problem, instead in An Unhurried Leader he gently and graciously guides the reader toward change that is doable and a reflection of the genius of Jesus' unhurried way of living and leading. Another must read!"
—Doug Fields, author of Your First Two Years in Youth Ministry
