Reviews - What do our customers think?
Time is not the constant in our universe  Jul 22, 2008
I read this book twice, and was left in awe both times that I read it. Ellen has a highly entertaining style of writing that makes the most profound concepts understandable. I never understood before that E=mc squared meant that the speed of light was the constant in our universe, and that time and matter are relational. It was a revelation that tied in so beautifully to "God is LIGHT". HE is the real constant in our universe. It makes you sit in awe of God over and over again at the enormity of our universe and how God is in the "now" all the time. Peter's suggestion (2 Peter 3:8) that 'With the Lord a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as a day" makes total sense in this perspective, as well as the scriptural conundrum of Jesus existing with God before the world began. Ellen has made me understand the Bible even better with her entertaining and profound thoughts on time, and helped me to feel peace in knowing that in this crazy stressed out world, all is well. I highly recommend this book for those who love deep thoughts made simple, and who need to see that even though some scientists ridicule our faith, "Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?" (1 Corinthians 1:20)

One of the best books I've read in 20 years.
It's a must have for the deep thinker or the person seemingly always pressed for time.
Devotional, Informative, Thoughtful Stories with a Theme  Oct 17, 2007
First, I have to disclose that my wife and I are acquaintances of Ellen Vaughn, having attended the same church for several years, occassionally facing one another on the sidelines of a soccer match and shuttling our daughter back and forth to her home to visit with her daughter.

That said, I purchased this book on my own, and there has been no discussion or advance notice, and this represents my independent and honest review of this book.

First and foremost, as evidenced strongly in this book, Ellen Vaughn is a very thoughtful and effective story-teller. Each "chapter" comprises just a few pages and makes one primary point which is effectively interwoven around a story combined with some insightful commentary that stimulates thought and response from the reader. Especially noteworthy are how many of these stories are drawn from her personal life and experience and provide a transparent look into someone who is affected in common ways with events, relationships and challenges just as are we. Here, there is no artificial descent from the mountain top to dispense pearls of wisdom to the commoners below, displayed. Ellen is painstakingly real in her writing, her thoughts and her applications and by that she invites the reader to enter into the experience as a partner. That is a quality that is rare indeed and that in itself makes this book a very enjoyable and worthwhile read.

In terms of the subject matter, Time; the temptation to be overly broad or to become diverted or engrossed with the plethora of material germaine to this subject is skillfully and deliberately avoided. Instead, there is demonstrated a great deal of thought and research to present the elements within each vignette and rather than just imparting information, there is meaning to meditate and think upon. Time is indeed an incredibly prolifically written upon theme in our culture. There is recognition of this coupled with a broad sampling that does justice to the various elements in terms of science, time management, religion and philosophy that are out there and dominating much of our popular literature and other public forums.

In the end, the book takes the reader by the hand to wander through the myriad of thoughts and considerations that most will encounter when they enter into the Time matrix, and then brings them out with some simple but powerful thoughts that relate to our mortality, relationships and most importantly our standing with God. If time is the stuff that life is made of, then more to the point, this is a book on life and how to live it.

As a former Christian & Missionary Alliance Pastor, I would be remiss if I did not point out as well, how much of the material and experiences used by Vaughn in this work relates to the C&MA in terms of some of the stories and many of the quotes and references throughout the work. A.W. Tozer in particular, I believe, would have been heartened to see some of his words woven into this fine tapestry. There apparently is still hope for Presbyterians! ;)

In short, this book is a worthwhile, enjoyable and beneficial read in many ways. It present deep thoughts in a concrete manner than puts the cookies on the lower shelf in an inviting manner. It would make an excellent group study or serve as a good devotional for an individual or family to refer to daily and move through the thoughts and then spend some time in prayer or reflection.

I recommend this book highly.

Time Peace is worth the time  Sep 20, 2007
Time Peace is perceptive, theologically engaging, and witty. Small groups will want to look at it for study and discussion. I expect to use it in Sabbath ministry to my type-AAA friends.

I met Ellen Vaughn last week at a gathering of Christian writers in Fairfax, Virginia. Sabbath ministry had been on my mind and the review by Charles Colson suggested that I might benefit from her seminar. Ellen came across as a committed Christian struggling to find balance in the unbalanced world of Northern Virginia.

Ellen's writing craft is displayed in several dimensions.

First, she does her homework. In researching time as a topic, she reviewed film, time management books, scripture, and scientific literature. I suspect that she also did a number of interviews.

Second, she paints wonderful mental pictures. I will never forget her lesson on the six deadly sins and how they relate to Gilligan's Island.

Third, she is willing to take theological and intellectual risks. Most Luke commentaries do not offer alternative readings of the Mary and Martha story. Likewise, I suspect that most English majors do not write extensively on Einstein's theory of relativity and string theory.

Finally, she throws curve balls in her prose. I doubt, for example, that she really sits much on the beach throwing alka seltzer tablets in the air to the sea gulls, but the thought is interesting.

Personally, I was touched by her story about Vicky Armel, a police officer gunned down for no apparent reason within walking distance of my home in Centreville, Virginia. Knowing that Vickey came to Christ before all that took place gave me comfort in reflecting on her passing. For that, Ellen, I am grateful.
A little disconnected  Sep 11, 2007
The book divides easily into two topics--a layperson's discussion of the scientific research into time and an in-depth theologian's discussion of time. Both parts of the book are excellent, but the two sections are not tied together well. Nevertheless, it is an excellent read and useful for gaining a proper perspective on one's use of time. In the end Vaughn accomplished in me what she intended: she increased my peace as I live in time.
