Publisher's Description

What are the motives behind and the consequences of sleep deprivation?


Overview


We are a nation of the chronically sleep-deprived, says Lauren F. Winner in her article for BOOKS & CULTURE. Winner examines the motives behind and the consequences of sleep deprivation, pondering why we deny our God-created need for sleep.


Is sleep deprivation a subconscious desire to deny our mortality in a culture that intensely focuses on eternal youth and vigorous health? Do our sleep habits reflect our trust in God? What are the physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences of sleep deprivation? This study will examine the priority, necessity, and purpose of sleep.
