Do you say 'yes' to requests when really you mean to say 'no'? Do you feel permanently trapped by your 24/7 lifestyle?
^While offering practical help to busy Christians, Tim Chester also opts for root-and-branch treatment: you need to deal radically with the things that are driving you.


^^If you're busy because of the following:


^^^'I need to prove myself'

^ 'Otherwise things get out of control' ^ 'I like the pressure/money' ^think again!
^At the root of our 'slavery' are serious misunderstandings, often reinforced by our culture. If we want to be free, then we need to counteract them with God's word. It's important to manage our time, but it's more important to manage our hearts.


^^God has promised his rest to all who are weary and burdened (Matthew 11:28). It's up to us to accept it.


^^'Tim Chester unmasks the deceptions that drive our behaviours. This helpful book offers many practical time-saving tips and a biblical treatment of the busyness disease afflicting so many of us.'
^Paul Valler


^^'Heeding this book will free you up to do the things you really should be doing. Stand back and take stock now - or get stuck on the treadmill of life and regret it later.'
^Ram Gidoomal
