Book Review: Crazy Busy by Kevin DeYoung

Crazy Busy by Kevin DeYoung was crazy good. Basically, DeYoung offers ways to find sanity in and for the busy lives we live. His outline consists of 3 dangers to avoid, 7 diagnoses to consider, and one thing you must do.

His 3 dangers deal with what busyness does to our lives. Busyness can steal our joy, rob our hearts, and it can rot our souls. His 7 diagnoses are really good, and they end with an interesting twist! He lets the reader know that busyness is something we all are going to struggle with. There is no cure, no way out, no escape, however if we can embrace the burden of busyness we will be able to deal with it in a more productive manner.

He closes his book with one thing you must do: Prioritize Christ. On page 116 he writes, “When I daily admit how needy I am, daily meditate on the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and daily feed on the restorative wisdom of His Word, I am propelled to share with others the grace that I am daily receiving at the hands of my Savior.” What a powerful thought, which is the last thought of this book I would recommend to anyone seeking how to deal with busyness.
