Less is More : Spirituality for Busy Lives
Brian Draper was tired of feeling tired; "life in its fullness" felt like a life crammed full of stuff, and no more. "I don't want to be the kind of father who turns up late and exhausted for his children's school concert and sits at the back fiddling with a Blackberry, distracted, vacant. I want to be THERE, in the front row, fully present." Drawing on the guidance of Christian wisdom, he began to notice opportunities, day to day, to reduce the quantity, and increase the quality of life - to make room for his soul. LESS IS MORE distils a wonderful spiritual principle which is especially significant at this point in history, when time is limited and money is in short supply. Chapters include: Clearing the loft - literally and spiritually; Using your senses to savour what is free; Finding rhythm; Giving freely; Expressing yourself.

`"Extremely eloquent ... really helpful insights and suggestions, it clearly arises from deep reflection and insight." * Christianity Magazine * This one certainly contains a wealth of wisdom and some really helpful suggestions. Consumerism has impacted all sectors of society -both Christian and wider - often with devastating consequences, and we need urgently to redress the balance and learn the value of discovering that less really is more. -- Ruth Valerio * Third Way * The style is warm and conversational and the illustrations are drawn from a wide variety of contexts. This makes the book ideal for browsing or for use on a retreat or lent course, personally or in a group. -- Church Times * Church Times * "When I first met Brian I was struck with what a clear voice he has for articulating faith in the modern world in a new way. I'm thrilled that he's continuing to give us books like this one. Prepare to be illuminated and inspired." -- Rob Bell, bestselling author and speaker "In the busyness of day-to-day existence - filled with frenetic distractions and diverting amusements - Brian Draper's writing inspires us to stop long enough to listen to the whisper of our souls, to rediscover the sacred wonder of life, and to celebrate our place in the world." -- Steve Chalke MBE, Founder of Oasis Global & Stop The Traffik
