Ruthless Elimination of Hurry by John Mark Comer

“Who am I becoming?” That was the question nagging pastor and author John Mark Comer. Outwardly, he appeared successful. But inwardly, things weren’t pretty. So he turned to a trusted mentor for guidance and heard these words: “Ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life. Hurry is the great enemy of the spiritual life.” It wasn’t the response he expected, but it was—and continues to be—the answer he needs. In this book, you’ll find a fascinating roadmap to staying emotionally healthy and spiritually alive in the chaos of the modern world.

Who is this Man by John Ortberg

John Ortberg has written a powerful testament to the impact that Jesus had on human history, on the human condition, and on our understanding of the obligations of one human being to another. John demonstrates that nothing in our existence has been quite the same since that fateful Sunday long ago. The real power of this book rests in the paradox of our faith—that to follow Jesus is not a pathway to an easy life, but a call to do hard things if we are to live in the image of our Lord.

Win the Day is the jump-start you need to go after your goals, one day at a time. As Batterson unpacks daily habits, you’ll see how simple it is to pursue them with focus and dedication—not someday down the road, but now.
