Redeeming Your Time: 7 Biblical Principles for Being Purposeful, Present, and Wildly Productive by Jordan Raynor. WaterBrook. 240 pages. 2021
Like me, you may have already read a few books about productivity. I’ve read good books by Tim Challies and Matt Perman, and recently read Redeeming Your Time by Jordan Raynor (Called to Create, Master of One), which I commend to you.
Raynor tells us that the solution to our struggle with time management is found in Jesus Christ. He tells us that Jesus offers us peace before we do anything, and also that Jesus shows us how God would manage his time. Because he was infallible God, we can assume that Jesus managed his time perfectly, providing us with the ideal model to follow. As far as what makes this book different from other time management/productivity books you’ve read, the author tells us that this book:
- Accounts for how the Author of time managed his time.
- Seeks to collect and connect the previously disconnected pieces of the time management puzzle.
- Attempts to strike a unique balance between the theological, the theoretical, and the tactical.
