Full Product Description

Michael Kelly's Boring is for those days when you find yourself asking: “Does what I'm doing even matter?” and “Will I ever make a difference in this world?” or “Does anyone even care about this?”

This helpful, reassuring book reminds you that God is always present even in the ordinary and everyday. Even when you think you've lost your awareness of him, God is powerfully present and active in your thoughts, words and actions.

Exploring the biblical account of Saul's rise to kingship Michael Kelly shows how you can give ourselves to your ordinary life; whether that's parenting, marriage or in the workplace. You can fully believe in God's presence and power in all those so called 'secular' situations and discover that they're all 'sacred' boring and full of the life of the Kingdom.

Boring by Michael Kelley was published by Broadman and Holman in September 2013 and is our 47166th best seller. The ISBN for Boring is 9781433681356.

Publisher's Description

We all need reminding that God is not absent from the seemingly insignificant details of life. Today we live with a false separation between sacred and secular that was never meant to be. Work, paying bills, changing diapers . . . when Jesus enters any situation He makes even the most mundane things extraordinary.

Bored enlivens this truth as author Michael Kelley uses the narrative of Saul's rise to kingship in the Old Testament to make his fine point: we can give ourselves to ordinary life -- parenting, marriage, work, etc. -- because we fully believe in God's presence and power within those situations. They are no longer boring but important.

See every relationship, every act of kindness, and every moment for what it is: a part of God's exciting plan for your life.


"If you've lost the sense of how powerfully present God is in the ordinary, then this book was written just for you. Read this and move beyond life-as-usual to life with an extraordinary God. You'll learn that there really is no such thing as ordinary." -  Pete Wilson, Pastor of Cross Point Church, Author of Plan B and Let Hope In.
"For every office employee who questions, “Does what I'm doing even matter?” For every student who wonders, “Will I ever make a difference in this world?” For every parent who asks, “Does anyone even care about this?” For all of you who look at your lives and think, “Is this all that there is?” This is your book. Read it; spend time with it; share it; read it again. God is "in" a lot more than we realize, sovereignly "building the city" through the most mundane of tasks (Ps. 127:1-3)." -  J.D. Greear, Pastor of Summit Church
