After a year of unknowns, Get Your Life Back with an Online Bible Study by John Eldredge hosted at

Bible Gateway

Recover your soul using biblical practices starting May 10

Grand Rapids, Mich. — The madness of technology’s increasing speed and the media’s deluge of information is taking our lives hostage, according to New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge. “My premise is simple,” he says. “The world is nuts. It’s gone off the rails and is trying to take our hearts and souls with it.”

Bible Gateway, the most visited Christian website in the world, is hosting the Get Your Life Back Online Bible Study, presented by John Eldredge, from May 10–June 25, 2021. Free registration for the event is at

Watch the video introducing this Online Bible Study.

Based on the lessons of the book, Get Your Life Back: Everyday Practices for a World Gone Mad (Thomas Nelson, 2020), this 6-session online video study will teach participants such principles as:

  • How One-Minute Pauses will strengthen their souls.
  • The rich benefits of benevolent detachment.
  • Ways to intentionally appreciate common beauty in everyday life as salve for the soul.

“Most people live their daily lives along a spectrum from slightly rattled to completely fried as their normal state of being,” says Eldredge. “God wants to come to us and restore our lives. What we need to do is put ourselves in places that allow us to receive his help. This six-week study shows how.”

Participants of this Online Bible Study will receive the following free downloads and online access to enhance their experience:

  • Chapters 1–3 from the book Get Your Life Back.
  • Session one of the Get Your Life Back Study Guide.
  • The One-Minute Pause personal guide.
  • One-Minute Pause Scripture Cards.
  • Access to 6 video lessons with John Eldredge. These videos will release week-by-week, no additional registration required.

Participants are also encouraged to download the free One-Minute Pause App, which invites users into the practice of releasing everything to God and restoring their union with him.
