When Work and Family Collide

It always fascinates me when an author can take such a large subject and successfully pack it into a short book and still slam home the point so well. Andy Stanley has certainly done this with When Work and Family Collide. This is such an important, but frequently ignored, topic and such a typical trap that we all fall into at times, especially in an era and culture where we have more jockeying for our time and attention than at any other time in history.

Andy does a great job of laying out the ways this can manifest itself in our lives. Then he nails us with what some may consider a shocking conclusion to the balance we all try to achieve between work, home and everything else that is competing for our time and attention. I’ll leave it up to you to find out what that is by reading the book.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. I wish I had discovered it earlier in life but I certainly plan to pass it on to others and to use its contents with those I offer counsel.
