Widely-acclaimed author Mark Buchanan states that what we've really lost is "the 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 book, Buchanan reminds us of this and gives practical advice for restoring the sabbath in our lives.
Mandy Farmer5 Stars Out Of 5A book everyone should readApril 16, 2016Mandy FarmerQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0A book everyone should read ... probably more than once to be reminded of the importance of rest.
Buchanan took a sabbatical to research the subject of the rest of God. And found so much that pricked his own heart about taking too little rest. He noticed that "the harder he worked, the less he accomplished." and he realized that "the sabbath was a form of mending". There is some renewal that only comes from resting in the Lord and being still.
In my own life, I have always known the importance of the sabbath, but Bachanan has placed a new and fresh look at The Rest of God. The Sabbath is about much more than going to church on Sunday. It's about the much need time to be still. God must have known how easily we find we are running ourselves ragged. And how we would need instruction and reminders on this.
Never have I read a book and wanted to read it again before I had even finished it the first time. I'm putting the book back on my list of "Books to Read" cause I plan to read it again.

iamhBC, CanadaAge: 45-54Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5A good writerJune 22, 2015iamhBC, CanadaAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Mark Buchanan is definitely a good writer, creatively weaving stories, anecdotes and scripture references throughout his prose. There were aspects of his book, however, that left me more puzzled than others (the Chapter on 'play'). I came away, at times, feeling that the writing had somehow taken over and in the midst the overall point had been lost. Overall, though, Buchanan's 'Rest of God' is the best book, so far, that I have read on this topic.

I'm looking forwrd to slowly digesting all the gems of wisdom that he's sharing.
AnonymousFloridaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Information ALL Christians need to readNovember 13, 2011AnonymousFloridaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5God said the Sabbath was to be observed for all time. It is one of the Ten Commandments. For some reason, we believe we are supposed to continue keeping MOST of the Ten Commandments - but not the Fourth one. Or, we feel that the Sabbath, which God clearly said was the seventh day of the week, should be changed to the first day. This book is a must read for clearing up many misconceptions and wrong teachings that we have received.
