ECPA BESTSELLER • A compelling emotional and spiritual case against hurry and in favor of a slower, simpler way of life   “As someone all too familiar with ‘hurry sickness,’ I desperately needed this book.”—Scott Harrison, New York Times best-selling author of Thirst   “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. Too often we treat the symptoms of toxicity in our modern world instead of trying to pinpoint the cause. A growing number of voices are pointing at hurry, or busyness, as a root of much evil.   Within the pages of this book, you’ll find a fascinating roadmap to staying emotionally healthy and spiritually alive in the chaos of the modern world.

Editorial Reviews

There are those rare books that every single waking person needs to immediately go read. This is that book. We’ve found no better conversation or a more much-needed antidote to our culture’s problem of busyness and hurry than John Mark’s words in this book. Beyond helpful and encouraging and insightful to us! Alyssa and Jefferson Bethke, New York Times best-selling authors of Jesus > Religion and Love That Lasts
John Mark Comer has given a gift to the church. This book is prophetic, practical, and profoundly life giving. He confronts the idolatry of speed that is causing so much emotional and relational trauma, and he provides a way forward that creates hope, hunger, and a vision of a beautiful life. I consider this required reading. Jon Tyson, lead pastor of the Church of the City New York and author of The Burden Is Light
John Mark Comer’s transparency invites us to reconsider how we live our lives by getting straight to the point: if we don’t eliminate our busyness, we just may eliminate our souls. The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry will inspire you to make the hard but practical choices that will utterly change your trajectory for the better. Gabe Lyons, president of Q Ideas and author of Good Faith
Living as a spiritually and mentally healthy follower of Jesus in our technological, calendar-driven culture is, it turns out, quite difficult. In this book John Mark Comer shares his story of discovering a different way of life that’s inspired by the way and wisdom of Jesus. This is a practical, personal, and challenging call to imagine new ways that our lives can imitate Jesus. Tim Mackie, cofounder of the Bible Project
Like a tall glass of ice cold water on the hottest day of the year, The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry is refreshing, revitalizing, and a shock to the system. Beautifully and compellingly written by one of our foremost thinkers, it is a prophetic message for our time. Pete Greig, founder of the 24-7 Prayer movement and senior pastor of Emmaus Rd, Guildford, UK
Great guy; even better book! Bob Goff, author of the New York Times bestsellers Love Does and Everybody, Always
John Mark Comer is a hugely talented leader, speaker, and writer. You will find lots of wise advice here. Nicky Gumbel, vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton, London
Necessary. Freeing. Annie F. Downs, best-selling author of 100 Days to Brave and Remember God
Never has a generation needed a book as much as this. John Mark has beautifully written a remedy for our overworked and tired souls. Jeremy and Audrey Roloff, New York Times best-selling authors of A Love Letter Life
As someone all too familiar with ‘hurry sickness,’ I desperately needed this book. Scott Harrison, New York Times best-selling author of Thirst
