My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is subtitled as “a mercifully short book about a really big problem.” Kevin DeYoung approaches the issue that we are always so busy with everyday life and presents it as a problem to be resolved post haste. DeYoung asserts that this problem isn’t a small issue, but rather a large challenge to be approached: this constant pace of busyness is wrecking havoc to our physical, social, and spiritual well-being. DeYoung believes that a life full of busyness is in stark opposition to what G-d intended for us. There needs to be a balance between being lazy and being overworked, but what is it? That’s what DeYoung hopes to reveal in this book.
Verner narrates at a medium pace, one at which is faster than most readers, but an appropriate speed for book narration. It’s not the speed of presentations, but definitely one of informational videos. Verner clarifies each individual word to bring the full importance of what DeYoung intends. Matching what one could easily believe as the author’s intended voice for the text, Verner is convincing in his appeal to be intrigued with the audio. Authentic and sincere with his intonation and reflective presentation, Verner excels in the narration and is the perfect pair for this timely and necessary read, or in this case, listen.
