The Burden Is Light

The Burden Is Light
By Jon Tyson
Publisher: Multnomah
Genre: Christian Living
Release Date: 03/13/18

In his fourth book, Christian inspirational speaker Jon Tyson uses his speech-like writing style to convince the Faithful that our society’s focus on material success draws our attention away from our faith.

Tyson, an Australian who moved to the U.S. 20 years ago, often gives insights on faith in modern society.

Tyson uses anecdotes, Scripture, quotes from popular figures, humor, and a few challenges to build his case. His personable style is intimate and illustrates his relatability.

Every chapter in the 224-page book starts with short Scripture and/or a quote from a respected social source (Teddy Roosevelt, Mother Teresa, William Booth).

Though readers of almost any age could read and understand the teachings, those who would benefit the most are young adults trying to plan their lives and older adults who are materially successful but feel a void.
