Perman, Matthew A.
“Christians today need to understand how to live healthy and productive lives, not only in the home, but especially in the workplace. Productivity is hard-wired into our DNA by God who created man in His image and likeness. This is why I'm so excited about How to Get Unstuck by Matt Perman. This book will help readers learn how to be productive in a short, easy-to-digest manner. I encourage you to pick up a copy of this book and learn how to become even more productive via a Christian worldview.”See All

“I'm a big fan of Matt Perman's work. If you can imagine a cross between theologian Jonathan Edwards and Getting Things Done guru David Allen, then you have in your head a picture of Matt Perman. No one combines theological substance with practical and transformative self-management insights like Matt. His What's Best Next was hugely helpful--and I couldn't be more excited about his thoughtful and imminently practical new book How to Get Unstuck. Nothing faddish or superficial here. This is God-centered and gospel-driven wisdom--the best of self-management insights set within a genuinely Christian framework of flourishing in Christ. Highly recommended!”See All

“When I encountered the concisely practical wisdom in Matt Perman's latest book I immediately thought of several friends who would benefit from the tome. Then I took out the log stuck in my own eye and realized how much I needed to take Matt's advice to heart. In Romans, we're called to resist the 'patterns of this world.' Unstuck shows us how.”See All

“Perman's new book on productivity goes beyond the how of effectiveness to the why: Why do anything well? The answer is found in our theology: Excellence, attention, and care are all ways that we leaders love our God and our neighbors. Drawing on the wisdom of business gurus, neuroscientists, and pastors, Perman has provided a resource for all of us who desire to steward our time, talents, and resources better so that we can live out the gospel more faithfully and fully in the time we've been given.”See All
