Overview

Sabbath is one day a week when we should rest from our otherwise harried lives, right? In Living the Sabbath, Norman Wirzba leads us to a much more holistic and rewarding understanding of Sabbath-keeping. Wirzba shows how Sabbath is ultimately about delight in the goodness that God has made—in everything we do, every day of the week. With practical examples, Wirzba unpacks what that means for our daily lives at work, in our homes, in our economies, in school, in our treatment of creation, and in church. This book will appeal to clergy and laypeople alike and to all who are seeking ways to discover the transformative power of Sabbath in their lives today.

I bought this book based solely on his introduction to Wendell Berry's Art of the Commonplace, and am glad I did. We are fed a constant diet of fast is better, working long hours is good, weekends are for either more work or playing as hard as we work. We "need" more and bigger toys, and taking a break from constant motion is a bad thing. The hype is wrong, and taking the time to read this book will help to provide the break we all need.
