NCLA Review - In this book on the parable found in John 10, Joanna Weaver addresses an issue that is familiar to many of us—busyness. We are trying to do too many things, like Martha, when we should be listening to Jesus, like Mary. Sometimes we feel our work goes unnoticed or unappreciated. Like Martha, we need to listen to Jesus. Jesus' rebuke to Martha to "choose the better part" tells us we should follow Him and accept his correction because it is made in love. He wanted Martha to change her attitude and recognize that she had value—regardless of how hard she worked—simply because she was His. When their brother Lazarus died and the sisters sent for Jesus (John 11), it was Martha who first ran to greet him. Instead of becoming overwhelmed with the demands of our daily life, Jesus invites us to live a joyful life of intimacy with Him that flows naturally into loving service. The Appendices include a study guide, lists of resources, a plan for a half day of prayer, suggestions for journaling, and a section on Christian rights in the workplace. Rating: 4—MW ( )

Not my favorite book to read but our book group's discussion made it much more worthwhile. ( )

If you are spiritually dry, need a spiritual revival, or a jump-start in your personal relationship with Jesus - this book is for you. Mrs. Weaver gives humble advice on how to balance our 'to-do lists' with our quiet times. It is very easy to read and contains very doable advice. ( )
