About the Author

Edgar L. Vann grew up as a prodigy: a gifted child who was always expected to finish first and usually did. He became the pastor of a divided Detroit congregation at age 21, beginning four decades of nonstop church growth, wide-ranging comprehensive ministry and civic involvement, with little room built in for rest, relaxation and reflection. That breakneck schedule contributed to a New Years Eve Service health emergency: sudden cardiac death, followed by a back-to-life recovery on the floor of his church. Edgar Vanns experience was a wake-up call that helped produce this practical guide to breaking out of the prison of overwork and needless stress. He uses statistical data, entertaining anecdotes and Biblical scripture to convincingly demonstrate that being a do-it-all work martyr is a dead end. He shows how the path to a richer, more rewarding life starts with a better work-life integration and a focus on improved health.
