Publishers Weekly, 2003-04-15 People today are overloaded, overextended and exhausted, assert husband-and-wife team Steve (founder and chairman of Men's Leadership Ministries in Bryan/College Station, Tex.) and Mary (former staffer of Campus Crusade for Christ) Farrar. And while it's tempting to think we can have it all and do it all-and that we deserve it all-such beliefs are patently unrealistic. What we can have, the Farrars argue, is a rich and balanced life through faith: "God has provided for each of us an unlimited line of credit in His Word. The Bible is not unlike an ATM, accessible 24/7 for us to draw from its rich resources whenever we have need." The authors outline seven crucial needs that modern-day Christians often ignore-a sovereign, a Sabbath, a sanctuary, sustenance, supplication, simplicity and stewardship-and, in warm tones, weave in scripture and examples from modern life to show how meeting these needs will help readers stop feeling so overwhelmed. Although the authors tread familiar territory (the best-selling Ordering Your Private World, by Gordon MacDonald, comes to mind) and tend to criticize modern culture instead of offer solid solutions, Christians should find this a helpful, if slightly preachy, guide for finding breathing room in their busy lives.
