Book Review - The Power of a Half Hour

The perception is that great things are only accomplished in at least an hour of effort.   An hour long business meeting!   An hour of prayer!  It is true that much can be done in an hour or more, but the same can be said for using just a half hour.   Tommy Barnett in his book, The Power of a Half Hour has me convinced that small amounts of time can produce great results in my life.

A half hour can be used to improve your life, strengthen your faith, build your character, advance your dreams, improve relationships and change the world. You will see these subjects addressed in this book.  Each chapter is short so you should be able to finish one chapter if you do not have much time.

My favorite chapter is called Listen.  It is part of the section about strengthening your faith.  “Be still and know that I am God.” in Psalm 46:10 comes to mind as I read this chapter.  I need direction and wisdom so an half hour of quiet time with the Lord is time well spent.

Connect with Impact was also a relevant chapter to me because I currently feel a need to re-connect or maintain a connection with family and friends.  I can get so busy, but relationships are so important.  I can take 30 minutes to make a phone call, send an email or write a letter.

Barnett wants us to realize that a lot can be accomplish in a short amount of time.  Take action consistently for 30 minutes a day, week or month and change will happen.  I recommend this book because it will encourage you to move forward in some area of your life.
