Publisher's Summary

Widely acclaimed author Mark Buchanan states what we've really lost is "[T]he rest of God - the rest God bestows and, with it, that part of Himself we can know only through stillness". 

Stillness as a virtue is a foreign concept in our society, but there is wisdom in God's own rhythm of work and rest. Jesus practiced sabbath among those who had turned it into a dismal thing, a day for murmuring and finger-wagging, and he reminded them of the day's true purpose: liberation - to heal, to feed, to rescue, to celebrate, to lavish and relish life abundant.  

With this audiobook, Buchanan reminds us of this and gives practical advice for restoring the sabbath in our lives.

I get it now

I’ve been struggling for MONTHS to understand why I should Sabbath. I know God commanded it and that it’s a gift. But I had so much to get done! I didn’t have time to take a whole day off doing...what? Sitting around? But now I understand. This book spoke directly to me about all the things I’ve been struggling with when it comes to sabbath. And these are things that directly affect other areas of my life and the call God has on me. So yes, I 100% recommend this book.

a good reminder

life is busy and only getting busier. this book is a great reminder of the "why" of sabbath, and a framework to think about the "how".

Beautiful perspective on rest

This book was amazing and really guided me through rest, how to find it, and the value behind it. Rest is truly necessary for success and balance in life.
