The Power of a Half Hour

I can't tell you how many times I have said, "I don't have the time."  Or "I planned on doing this and that, but time slipped away and I never got to it."  Does that sound familiar?  Tommy Barnett attempts to answer our time problems in his upcoming book, "The Power of a Half Hour: Take Back Your Life Thirty Minutes at a Time."

There are 30 short chapters in this book, averaging about 8 pages per chapter.  Barnett split the book into 7 Sections, as follows
  • Impact
  • Purpose and Goals
  • Faith
  • Character
  • Dreams
  • Relationships
  • Advancing God's Kingdom

In the back of the book is a Study Guide, as well as a one page synopsis of each chapter, which highlights the guiding principle he wants us to put into practice.  This book struck a chord with me as I seek to prioritize my time and be as efficient as possible.  While it was not possible to put every thought into practice.  There are a great deal of nuggets for the reader to take with him or her through Barnett's personal stories and anecdotes.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book.  The main ideas focus on using our time to effect change in the seven areas Barnett discussed.  It's easy to read, understandable and has principles which can help change a person's life.

Pastor Barnett's book will be available December, and would be a great Christmas present. You may watch a brief video about the book at

I received this book for free from "Water Brook/Multnomah Publishing Group" in exchange for a nonbiased review.
