The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

How to Stay Emotionally Healthy and Spiritually Alive in the Chaos of the Modern World

Jeff Pickering

I first learned of John Mark Comer through his excellent podcast, “This Cultural Moment,” co-hosted with fellow pastor, Mark Sayers, on ministry in post-Christian cities. So, when I saw this bright orange Instagram ad for his book saying “How to stay emotionally healthy and spiritually alive in the chaos of the modern world,” I put it on my Christmas list. His rich research regarding how we all got so busy, followed by pastoral words of what to do about it, is exactly what I needed while working among the relentless news cycle in Washington, D.C.
