The research and change methods that made "Simple Church "a multiawarded, #1 ministry best seller are now applied to everyday matters in "Simple Life." Authors Thom S. Rainer and Art Rainer interviewed a cross-section of 1,077 individuals to confirm that most people feel their lives are overly stressful and misguided, not allowing enough time for what really counts. As they share these highly relatable stories, the Rainers chart a simple path from joyless to joyful.
Breaking life down into four key sections (Time, Relationships, God, Money), the authors show how four key goals (Clarity, Movement, Alignment, Focus) can begin to foster a life that is more spiritual and less busy, a life rich in experiences with family and friends rather than double-booked to-do lists and late nights at the office. The book even lays out an easy-to-follow action plan that will move readers assuredly toward the simple life in just thirty days.
Art Rainer serves on the staff of First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach, Florida. He is an MBA graduate of the University of Kentucky, and is currently pursuing a doctorate in business administration. He is married to Sarah.
