Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully) Short Book About a (Really) Big Problem by Kevin DeYoung

Some of you may remember Kevin DeYoung from a sermon video a few weeks ago. He has written a fine, short and very readable book about the need for balance between living, ministry and rest. Two chapters are worth the price of the book. One demonstrates the tyranny of 21st century parents who have been programmed to think that over-involvement in the lives of their children is required to guarantee their success in life. DeYoung has some practical advice regarding how to take the pressure off by realizing there are no perfect parents, and furthermore, kid-focused homes may not be in the best interests of children anyway. Worth reading. There is also a fine chapter on how technology in general and social media in particular has come to dominate our days (and nights). What to do? Some very helpful suggestions that just about all of us would benefit from.
