Let's give ourselves an A for effort.
When we fail to rest we do more than burn ourselves out. We misunderstand the God who calls us to rest--who created us to be people of rest. Let's face it: our rest needs work. Sabbath recalls our creation, and with it God's satisfaction with us as he made us, without our hurried wrangling and harried worrying. It also recalls God's deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt, and with it God's ability to do completely what we cannot complete in ourselves. Sabbath keeping reminds us that we are free to rest each week. Eighteen months in Tel Aviv, Israel, where a weekly sabbath is built into the culture, began Lynne M. Baab's twenty-five-year embrace of a rhythm of restas a stay-at-home mom, as a professional writer working out of her home and as a minister of the gospel. With collected insights from sabbath keepers of all ages and backgrounds, Sabbath Keeping offers a practical and hopeful guidebook that encourages all of us to slow down and enjoy our relationship with the God of the universe.
"Rest. Delight. Are such things even possible in the 21st century? "Absolutely, believes Lynne M. Baab, author of Sabbath Keeping: Finding Freedom in the Rhythms of Rest. 'The meaning of the word Sabbath is "stop, cease, desist, pause, rest,"' she points out. 'The Sabbath is a concrete, practical, doable way to build rest into our schedules.'"-- As cited in Margaret Renkl, "A Day of Rest," Ladies' Home Journal, June 09
Baab weaves a compelling argument for incorporating Sabbath keeping into one?s personal life. Baab has taken a subject that could potentially be guilt-inducing and treated it with gentleness.-- Christian Library Journal, June 2007
"Winsome, passionate and persuasive, [Sabbath Keeping] will convince many Christians of the continuing relevance of the Fourth Commandment."-- Publishers Weekly, December 20, 2004 (starred review)
