Product Description

We are bombarded 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with messages on the need to consume, possess, achieve, and perform. God, by establishing the Sabbath, allows us to break out of this maniacal routine, insists Walter Brueggemann. In this new edition of Sabbath as Resistance, world-weary believers learn to return to what's crucial: God, other people, and the simple virtues. This new edition also contains a study guide that can be used for personal reflection or group discussions.

Publisher's Description

In this new edition that includes a study guide, 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. Brueggemann calls out our 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. Brueggemann shows readers how keeping the Sabbath allows us to break this restless cycle and focus on what is truly important: God, other people, all life. Perfect for groups or self-reflection, Sabbath as Resistance 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.
