The editors weave together personal experience, suggested practices, and historical and ethical material to form a unique volume for today’s church.

This book is much needed in a culture that emphasizes productivity and work as the source of identity. Sunday, Sabbath, and the Weekend points powerfully to an ancient yet contemporary countercultural spiritual practice Sabbath keeping. The book weaves together essays by scholars, pastors, and laity to tease out the meaning of Sabbath practices and Sunday for people today. It opens up important theological dialogue across traditions, with attention to context and ordinary daily living. An excellent resource!”
