Product Description

We are bombarded 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on the need to consume, possess, achieve, perform. God, by establishing the Sabbath, says Brueggemann, allows us to break out of this maniacal routine. World-weary believers learn to return to what's crucial: God, other people, and the simple virtues.

Discussions about the Sabbath often center around moralistic laws and arguments over whether a person should be able to play cards or purchase liquor on Sundays. Brueggemann writes that the Sabbath is not simply about keeping rules but rather about becoming a whole person and restoring a whole society. Importantly, Brueggemann speaks to a 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. Keeping the Sabbath allows us to break this restless cycle and focus on what is truly important. Brueggemann 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.
