The Christian church in America is doing its best to be relevant. Its leaders are trying harder, working longer hours, offering more programs, and trying to solve more problems. Not coincidentally, more clergy than ever before are burning out or "browning out," losing their edge, becoming lethargic. How do we move beyond this sense of despair and hopelessness? What does it mean to restore the soul of the church? How can it become more relevant unto itself and to people like those with whom I talk in the workplace-those who eagerly seek meaning? In Not Trying Too Hard,Bob Sitze has taken the bold first step on this journey of restoring the soul of the church.

Review:

"Precious-few pastors—and their churches—are enriched by trying too hard. Sitze shows us how to do something different." -- Gary Moore, counsel to Ethical and Spiritual Investors

"Provocative and comforting, this book can transform white-knuckled ministry into a joyful cradling of God's call." -- Rev. Margaret G. Payne, Bishop, New England Synod, ELCA
