Get A Life
Full Product Description
Long working hours, travel and ever-evolving gadgets connecting us to an always-on world leave many people sapped of energy and far too tired. Families and friends often get the dregs of lives worn out by work. Financial anxiety is the padlock that keeps us trapped. Sometimes we wonder whether we are in God's will and what the long-term legacy of our life will be.
Work-life balance problems? Paul Valler has been there.
Based on firsthand experience of a pressurized life Paul digs deep to uncover the root cause of our symptoms and shows how gaining a strong identity and clear purpose enables us to make winning choices. Bite-sized chapters and thoughtful questions make it possible for even the most committed workaholic to get a life.
Get A Life by Paul Valler was published by Intervarsity Press in March 2008 and is our 19375th best seller. The ISBN for Get A Life is 9781844742172.

Get a LifeJackie Scott, via The Good Book Stall
This is a practical and helpful book for all who juggle with employment and homelife/churchlife balance. We often get a lot of books on this subject which have started life in the States, but this one is based on the British rationale which makes the case studies given immediately relevant. Most of us work within the secular society and find there are often difficult choices and decisions to be made. Paul Valler looks at, among other things, how we can live authentically in the workplace as Christians, how we can make decisions about work/home balance, time management issues and money matters. The author has gone through many of the issues that most of us face and has given a Christian perspective that is measured and well argued. All of the chapters are based around the premise that there are three key dimensions to our work/home life – Purposes, Choices and Identity all of which need to be integrated and the final section of the book looks to God and his purpose for our life to see how we can achieve this integration. An inspiring read.

"This heartfelt, wise and vigorous book has the potential to help its readers do exactly what it says on the cover. May it be so for you." Mark Greene, LICC
"Paul Valler deserves an immense 'well done' for his exposure of the flaws in many work-related ideas, the debilitating effect of peer pressure, the deceptive nature of workplace culture e.g. "having to stay late", and for nailing the artificial and often unhelpful sacred/secular divide." Tom Stevens, Transform Work UK
" ... a practical, honest, Christ-centred help in our quest to live authentic lives." Jago Wynne, All Souls, Workplace Ministry
" (This book) ... makes the connections between faith and work, between Sunday morning and Monday morning." Tim Chester, Author, 'The Busy Christian's Guide to Busyness'
