WHO SETS THE PACE FOR YOUR LIFE IN THE FAST LANE? "SURELY THE CHRISTIAN LIFE was meant to be simpler than this!" For Jean Fleming, life seemed increasingly marked by a whirlwind of work, and church activities. The demands threatened to sweep away the quiet center of intimacy with God she so longed for.

"Between Walden and the Whirlwind" is a great book for anyone wanting to live a more Christ-centered life, specifically, living to please God instead of self or other people. Using the example of Henry David Thoreau's (whom I believe was not a believer but nevertheless had some good quotes) desire to live a simple life, Jean Fleming covers many good points in a brief read of just over 130 pages.

Among some of the topics covered include:

1. Christ must be the center of our lives.
2. We must not allow society define success and fulfillment for us.
3. Jesus often withdrew for times of pray, refreshment, and direction.
4. Being too busy can lead to a barren and empty life.
5. We can use busyness to avoid issues in life that we need to deal with.
6. Service and solitude are not mutually exclusive.
7. The importance of solitude in the Christian life.
8. Thoughts on serving others in Jesus' name.
9. True relief and comfort comes only from God.
10. Advantages of solitude.

An excellent read, I will often go to this title for future study and reminders that my time with Jesus Christ is very important and I must live to please Him.

Read and enjoy. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful book to bring your perspective as a christian back around to where it belongs on Christ. I found it focused me and helped me to dig deeper into where God wants me to be. Great book!
This was a very educational book for me about prioritizing my time. It uses Gods principles as your guide. I highly recommend this book for anyone who's life is out of balance. It is a short read.
