Book Overview

Everywhere we turn there are choices to be made. Like many people, you may set your priorities by making a mental list: God first; family second; church third. But, according to Dr. J. Grant Howard, "Lists of priorities don't make sense. They can't be lived out."

A Surefire Way To Order Your Priorities.

The original book by J. Grant Howard was a text book at Bible college. This book influenced my perspective of priorities. I grew up hearing about the heirarchial approach of priorities. For example, God is first, then your spouse, then children/parents, then job, etc. But do we spend over 40 hours a week serving God, with our spouse, and with our children? It looks great on paper but is impossible to live out consistently. Howard proposes a different model. God is the central priority. Then, there are the other various priorities all connected to God. Thus, there may be times when one priority becomes more important than others, but each area of our life is under God's authority.

Finding the right perspectives

J. Grant Howard gives an incredible amount of wisdom for those of us who sometimes struggle with our priorities. I often hear people say if there is one struggle they have in life it's with priorities. If you struggle with finding what relationships or "items" in your life need the most attention, then this book is for you. Howard shares from experience. From being a pastor, a dad, a seminary professor, and a man who loves the Lord, this book shares from the heart of someone who has lived out what he is writing. Because of this, this book is transparent and gives hope to those who live in the "tyranny of the urgent".
