Hurry up and wait! The theme for our world. Everyone seems to be so intensely busy. Never enough time for the real things we want to do.
This book will help. It won't be cure-all. But it is great start.
God wants His children to have rest, rest for our bodies, souls and minds. Rest from anxiety, etc., so at the heart is our rest in Christ.
From this, Kimmel proceeds to apply it to relationships, work, children, suffering, forgiveness, etc.
