Crazy Busy Book

I’M TOO BUSY!

We’ve all heard it. We’ve all said it. Just one look at our jam-packed schedules tells us how hard it can be to strike a well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing it all.

That’s why Kevin DeYoung addresses the busyness problem head on in his forthcoming book, Crazy Busy — and not with the typical arsenal of time management tips, but with the biblical tools we need to get to the source of the issue and pull the problem out by the roots.

Crazy Busy is coming to a store near you on September 23rd!

Weekly Ebook Specials: For the Pastor

In his new book, The Pastor’s Justification, Jared Wilson points out a common struggle of pastors:

The pastoral fraternity is an interesting one. We are a motley bunch of fools. Different personalities and tribes, different methodologies and styles, not to mention denominations and traditions and, of course, theologies. But there is something both lay elders and career elders have in common, something I’ve seen in the thirty-year senior pastor of a southern megachurch as well as the bivocational shepherd of a little, rural New England parish, the laid-back fauxhawked church planter and the fancy mousse-haried charismatic, and in nearly every pastor in between: a profound sense of insecurity for which the only antidote is the gospel.

This week’s ebook specials were picked especially for the pastors and church leaders out there. Each of these books points to the security found in Christ with practical, gospel-centered wisdom from your co-laborers.

To learn more about each title, click on the covers below to find them at Crossway.org. You’ll also find the ebooks at their reduced prices on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshout, Christianbook.com, eChristian, ibooks (apple), Vyrso, or your participating independent bookstore’s site. Discounted prices available through 7/29/2013.*
