I will begin by telling you what I wish I had known before I requested it to review: this is a book for men. Throughout the book, he stresses that it is for men again and again. He hints that a book for women, I believe written by his wife, will be written and eventually published. But this book...

I never knew how much I had burned out. I didn't recognize the signs that God was trying to show me. It took Him giving me catastrophe, helplessness and depression to fully realize my situation. I can proudly say I have been on the upward incline for a few weeks, or trying to be. This book made m...

Reset is a needed resource for church leaders. The author faced a health crisis several years ago which prompted him to reevaluate his life habits. He generously shares with others the lessons he learned so that they can form convictions that will avoid Murray's mistakes. He writes with a clear a...

Reset: Living a Grace-Paced Life in a Burnout Culture by David Murray is an excellent treatment of the problems men (especially pastors) face in midlife and the need for intentional rest, renewal, and restoration. Murray relates how his own experience of burnout and resulting health problems in h...

Even though Murray explicitly states this book is written for men or women seeking to better understand their husbands, I found it so incredibly helpful. I may not have understood all the comparisons to auto maintenance, but I also know quite a few men who that would also mean nothing for. For th...

Murray writes with deep understanding of the human mind and body. He ably dissects the myriad ways we can exhaust ourselves and pastorally applies biblical wisdom to reset for God's glory and our good. Forces the reader to evaluate bad habits in thinking and action. A good kind of painful read.

Another winner from David Murray. I suspect the message of this book is more important than most of us would want to admit. Every year, I pick a word to focus on throughout the year, and this year it has been "presence." It is hard to be present in this distracting world. Murray offers wise couns...

Our American culture has lost the Biblical understanding of rest, and it's easy, even as Christians, to follow our society's burnout approach in rebellion against God. This book is helpful both in diagnosing our state of denial about this and presenting practical changes to recover a Biblical vie...

Even though I'm not in pastoral ministry, in the last year I've learned how to slow down, say no, and learn how to rest well. Whether to please people, pay the bills, or just because we love the work, it's easy to just add one more spinning plate to the mix, with the illusion that we can do it al...

The author, whose blog is daily “must reading” for me, writes of serious physical experiences that he believes God gave him not only to teach him, but also to help other men (he is working with his wife to write a similar book for women) who have burned out or are about to. Life had become a rest...
