Description

Discussions about the Sabbath often center around moralistic laws and arguments over whether a person should be able to
play cards or purchase liquor on Sundays. In this volume, popular author Walter Brueggemann writes that the Sabbath is
not simply about keeping rules but rather about becoming a whole person and restoring a whole society. Importantly,
Brueggemann speaks to a 24/7 society of consumption, a society in which we live to achieve, accomplish, perform, and
possess. We want more, own more, use more, eat more, and drink more. Keeping the Sabbath allows us to break this
restless cycle and focus on what is truly important: God, other people, all life. Brueggemann offers a transformative
vision of the wholeness God intends, giving world-weary Christians a glimpse of a more fulfilling and simpler life
through Sabbath observance.
