Our cultural worship of connectivity and achievement
But how? That's what this book is trying to answer. Our culture makes constant demands of us. Do more. Accomplish more. Buy more. Post more. And in indeed we have become more--more anxious, tired, hurt, depressed, and frantic than ever.
What we are doing isn't working because we have forgotten the things that make us distinctly human. The things that anchor our lives, providing us with roots and meaning.
In this highly anticipated new book, New York Times Best Selling author Jefferson Bethke delivers a wake-up call to resist our culture and embrace the pace of Jesus in everyday life. To stop doing and start becoming, by proactively leaning into practices and disciplines that enable us to do so. In To Hell With The Hustle he shows his readers how to find landmarks, anchors, and rhythms that provide depth and meaning and that push back against the constant demands of modern life. And he reveals that what the world teaches us to avoid at all costs--things like silence, obscurity, solitude, and vulnerability--are the very things that can give us what we are looking for most--meaning, depth, order and richness.
"If anyone can speak to the topic of removing ‘hustle’ from our vocabulary, it would be Jefferson. I’ve watched him practice what he preaches on this, so the words in this book do not come without testing. This book will challenge you to live a life that relies on God."
"Ever feel like you need to work harder, put in more time to get ahead, or do everything in your power to be the best? That's the hustle. It can push you to places you don't want to go, and I've gone there more than I care to admit. In his latest book, To Hell with the Hustle, Jefferson Bethke will help you understand why the hustle can seem so alluring, show you how to avoid the traps it's created in our culture, and find true joy chasing after Christ instead."
"My friend Jefferson Bethke is brilliant and he is modeling in his life and family what he is writing in these pages and it is working. It is inspiring and convicting to watch someone flourish as they let go when culture hangs on and rest when culture says to run. To live like Jesus, to work and rest like Jesus, is the desire of so many hearts (mine included), and Jeff is leading us towards that life."
