The Big Church Read is a new national online Christian book club running a number of times a year, with the aim of encouraging Christians across the country to read and recommend good Christian books to one another.
And the first Big Church Read begins this September for six weeks
The book we will be reading is called: 
The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry 
John Mark Comer
It’s the perfect book for our time. 
Based on Dallas Willard’s philosophy that the hurried pace of 
our modern world inhibits a healthy spiritual and emotional life for us all, 
it sets out a plan for us to ruthlessly eliminate hurry from our lives.
You can find out more about the book, the author, and The Big Church Read itself by watching this short introductory video from the author:
