When Work and Family Collide

Andy Stanley always impresses me. He is a man who knows how to put into words how to apply Scripture. This book is no different. I like Stanley as a speaker AND an author, which is a great accomplishment.

This short yet powerful book causes the reader to evaluate how they've been spending time. "In effect, you pledge your allegiance to the person or thing that receives your time" (76).

"Whereas work is task focused, the family is relationship focused.... In one environment we find our worth through accomplishment. In the other we find our value simply by who our relatives are" (22).

I recommend this book, especially to businessmen who think that work is their entire life. One day they will come home and not recognize the people in the own house. It is time to make some changes in order to save your family.

I reviewed this book for Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers Blogging for Books. I received this book for free in exchange for a review of the book.
