*** Our Starred New Book of the Week:
Jen Pollock Michel
( Baker Books )
“‘Time belongs not to us but to God,’ contends Michel. Lambasting time management strategies that prioritize productivity, Michel argues that readers must instead accept that ‘there is always enough time to do what God has planned.’ Michel succeeds in putting earthly concerns in cosmic perspective. These insightful musings are worth a look.”–Publishers Weekly
Whether we’re trying to find time, save it, manage it, or make the most of it, one word defines our relationship with the clock: anxiety. Yet is productivity really the only grid for the good life? Have you ever imagined a life without hurry, relentless work, multitasking, or scarcity? A life that is characterized instead by presence, attention, rest, rootedness, fruitfulness, and generosity?
This is the kind of life we are meant for, says Jen Pollock Michel. But if we want to experience freedom from time anxiety, we have to reimagine our relationship with time itself.
In the pages of In Good Time, she invites you to disentangle your priorities from our modern assumptions and instead ground them in God’s time. Then she shows you how to establish 8 life-giving habits that will release you from the false religion of productivity so you can develop a grounded, healthy, life-giving relationship with the clock.
