Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully) Short Book about a (Really) Big Problem

Kevin DeYoung. Crossway, $11.99 trade paper (128p) ISBN 978-1433533389
DeYoung (The Hole in our Holiness)is a smart guy, and he offers a refreshing (and refreshingly short) take on the plague of modern American life: the too-long to-do list and the overscheduled calendar that produce the frazzled response "busy" to the innocent question "How are you?" DeYoung doesn't offer time management but rather theology. God wants you to use your talents, but God is not nearly as big on the idolatry of self-importance that often motivates overcommitment. Some of this could well have been said in a sermon, which would have been even shorter. But DeYoung is clever ("If Jesus were alive today, he'd get more emails than any of us."), his analysis is well-organized, and he brings theological thinking without moralizing. If you are someone who checks your email before going to bed and as soon as you wake up, DeYoung has your number, and this is your book. (Sept. 30)
