A Biblical Approach to Productivity

True productivity is more than just getting things done.

True productivity is less about getting things done; it is more concerned with stewarding priorities, time, and resources wisely and faithfully in a way that honors God. In Every Day Matters Brandon Crowe provides an accessible and biblical understanding of productivity filled with practical guidance and examples.

Crowe draws insights from wisdom literature and the life and teaching of the Apostle Paul to reclaim a biblical perspective on productivity. He shows the implications for matters such as setting priorities and goals, achieving rhythms of work and rest, caring for family, maintaining spiritual disciplines, sustaining energy, and engaging wisely with social media and entertainment.

 

Praise for Every Day Matters

Brandon Crowe distills the best secular books on productivity but with a distinctively Christian approach. What drives his common-sense advice is for us to glorify God.

–Andy Naselli, associate professor of systematic theology and New Testament for Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minneapolis; one of the pastors of Bethlehem Baptist Church

Brandon Crowe draws from his knowledge and experience as a scholar, professor, churchman, husband, and father to produce a biblically grounded and practically focused book on productivity. This book isn't solely about how to be productive in a busy world. It’s much more. Crowe shows his readers the need to be productive "in Christ" -- depending on his strength (not our own) and doing all things for his glory (not our reputations). Reading this book is sure to be good use of your time!

–David E. Briones, Associate Professor of New Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary

    This book could not have come at a better time at this point in my life. Finding myself dealing with multiple projects, this book helped me put a lot of things in the right perspective and also start implement some practical changes in my life. And when I saw that R. Kent Hughes wrote the foreword, I knew this book would be good. In the array of productivity books out there, this book is a true gem. Dr. Brandon Crowe, associate professor of New Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary, aims to help readers think biblically about how to get things done and gives practical advice for maximizing our time and energy toward the most important things in every day life, hence the title. The book is divided into three main parts. Part 1 is “Perspectives”, where he outlines the biblical perspective on productivity (both OT and NT). Part 2 is “Principles”, where he covers basic principle of productivity. Here he covers familiar ground that is found in other productivity books, but he adds his own contributions and sets apart in that he keeps these through the lens of Scripture and to the glory of God. Part 3 is “Practices”, here he gets really practical and gives you suggestions on tools you can use. It’s a fairly short book (about 130 pages), but I read it slowly since I started implementing his suggestions. But let me tell you, there are no words wasted here. Each chapter is full of wisdom. It’s a book that I will keep referencing as I start implementing the suggested methods for productivity. Also, Chapters 2 and 3 alone is worth the price of this book. The biblical perspective on work and productivity has given me a fresh perspective.
