The cover design for this book grabbed my attention because it graphically displays the constant struggle in my heart between the idolatrous drive for perfection that I fall prey to again and again, and the humble surrender to our gracious God that allows me to find joy in my imperfection.


The essence of the book can be summed up in this quote: “Almost anything in life that truly matters will require you to do small, mostly overlooked things, over a long period of time with him.” That certainly is true of pastoring…but is just as true in parenting and marriage and school and work and Christian community. Jesus’ way is not big and fast and glamorous, rather He delights to carry out His will as we walk with Him in the small, slow, and mundane things of our everyday lives.
