Every Day Matters: A Biblical Approach to Productivity
Pre-order item. This book will ship when it is released by the publisher.
True productivity is more than just getting things done.
True productivity is less about getting things done; it is more concerned with stewarding priorities, time, and resources wisely and faithfully in a way that honors God. In Every Day Matters Brandon Crowe provides an accessible and biblical understanding of productivity filled with practical guidance and examples.
Crowe draws insights from wisdom literature and the life and teaching of the Apostle Paul to reclaim a biblical perspective on productivity. He shows the implications for matters such as setting priorities and goals, achieving rhythms of work and rest, caring for family, maintaining spiritual disciplines, sustaining energy, and engaging wisely with social media and entertainment.

Brandon Crowe draws from his knowledge and experience as a scholar, professor, churchman, husband, and father to produce a biblically grounded and practically focused book on productivity. This book isn't solely about how to be productive in a busy world. It’s much more. Crowe shows his readers the need to be productive "in Christ" -- depending on his strength (not our own) and doing all things for his glory (not our reputations). Reading this book is sure to be good use of your time!
