Serving without Sinking

Full Product Description

Many of us are serving, and feel like we're sinking. We feel joyless, weary and burdened. John Hindley shows how Jesus was telling the truth when He offered people an "easy yoke" - a way of serving Him that is joyful and liberating. He explains why serving is so often joyless - and how our identity in Christ changes everything.

If you are serving, but sometimes feel as though you're sinking... you need this book!

Serving without Sinking by John Hindley was published by The Good Book Company in March 2013 and is our 15124th best seller. The ISBN for Serving without Sinking is 9781908762351.

“An utterly liberating and joy-giving book - and a really fun read. Serving without Sinking opens us up, exposing the problems that cripple our Christian lives, and then applies the healing balm of God’s grace. It’s a book that every Christian should read.” - Michael Reeves, Head of Theology at UCCF, UK; author of “Delighting in the Trinity” (US) / “The Good God” (UK).

“If, like me, you don’t read books much and get bogged down with Christian service, this book will help you smile. Not just because it is enjoyable, contemporary and biblical, but because it reminds us that we are served by Jesus, who—as our Master, Friend, Husband and Brother—gives us every reason not to sink, but to smile.” - David Burrowes, Member of Parliament for Enfield Southgate; Parliamentary Chairman of the Conservative Christian Fellowship.

“I am so glad someone wrote this book. It is easy for church service to degenerate into a burdensome exercise in works  righteousness — here is good news for anyone who wants to avoid bitterness or burn-out. I plan to commend this to every elder, deacon and ministry elder in our congregation.” - Mike McKinley, Pastor of Guilford Baptist Church, Virginia; author of “Passion” and “Church Planting is for Wimps” “If it’s true that as Christians we don’t need more than the gospel but more of the gospel, then this book is a book to read. It applies the gospel to our hearts and circumstances and reminds us again and again of what God has done for us in Christ. It is accessible, biblical and keeps taking us to the Saviour. Read and be refreshed.” - Steve Timmis, Director of Acts 29 Europe; a pastor in The Crowded House, Sheffield, co-author of Total Church.


'This enjoyable, fresh, honest, book did me good. There is something in it for every Christian man and woman at every stage of life.'- Christopher Ash
