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...

When I came across this book on amazon, it helped me to have the courage to admit to myself and others that I am burned out and in need of a new way of living and doing ministry that is sustainable and actually more joy-filled than draining.
I am so grateful for this book. It is very practical, ho...

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...

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...

Honestly. A must read. I recommend this to everyone (and the companion, female coutnerpart "Refresh") who is living in the culture of more, faster, busier, etc.
Learn to live life at a "grace" pace. It will be vital.

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...
