Book Recommendation…for the pastor’s ministry

My fellow pastor, Adam Embry, has written a booklet entitled, Help! I Can’t Get Motivated that is published in the same series as my booklet Help! He’s Struggling with Pornography.  This helpful booklet developed out of a series of sermons Adam preached at our church (Auburndale Baptist Church) from Proverbs considering the ways of the sluggard.  This booklet is the clearest and most helpful treatment of the issue of laziness that I have ever seen.  Any pastor, leader, or church member would benefit from reading this book and being familiar with it as a resource to pass on to others who struggle in this realm.  You can find the booklet at a good price here.

I’m curious, does anyone know of other helpful resources on laziness?

    The closest thing of which I am aware is C.J.’s “Biblical Productivity” booklet.

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Glad to hear about this new booklet! A booklet entitled “Procrastination: First Steps to Change” by Walter Henegar was really beneficial for me––when I finally got around to reading it. It’s one I have to re-read periodically. You can find it at the address below.

    Freedom from the Tyranny of the Urgent by Charles Hummel. C.J. Mahaney cites it a few times in his short pdf on Biblical Productivity…
    I have read both of those and they have proven to be unbelievably helpful in helping me get things done.

  4. Wish it were available on Kindle, the fastest and best way to get anything on this side of the world (Vanuatu, South Pacific).
