    "Take The Day Off" by Robert Morris is an excellent and timely read for seeking rest (spiritually, physically, etc.) for the weary soul in today's hyperconnected, overloaded, and fast-paced society. The title is around 200 pages and contains many helpful points:

    - The need for observing a literal sabbath day of rest.

    - Examples in the Bible and modern life when people observed a sabbath and were blessed.

    - God established the sabbath for our benefit.

    - Mentioning many studies supporting the wisdom in observing a sabbath.

    - Observing the sabbath and getting enough sleep is a way of admitting our need for God and our inability to live life totally in our flesh.

    Many other good points are covered. The book is very readable, full of good practical and spiritual insights, and smoothly transitions from chapter to chapter. I also really liked the author's mentioning the need to occasionally taking extended sabbaths. Quite frankly, I have learned that sometimes I've needed to practice this and have come away refreshed and ready to better take on my responsibilities. Unfortunately, it seems that our world does not value solitude, peace, quietness, and other practices conducive to better health and relationships.

    Will definitely read this title again. Highly recommended. I was given a review copy by Faith Words in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.

    You will never look at the Sabbath and REST the same way again!!

    Christians around the world and especially in the United States are living their lives in a state of constant stress. The emphasis in our culture is to not trust God, but rather to trust in the resources and things of this world. Man made solutions are projected inward and onto self, far away from the answers and peace that God wants to provide. The resulting "burn out" associated with these self improvement techniques and self help efforts is so prevalent in our society that many people, Christians included, are walking around and living their lives in a state whereby they are physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually drained!

    The new book, "Take the Day Off," by Robert Morris is a real eye opener. Robert takes the reader into the Bible and shows us that God by way of His creative wisdom has given His creation the gift of REST. I am going to go out on a limb here and say that probably most people have never viewed the Sabbath as a gift. Most people have probably never given any thought as to why God when giving Moses the Ten Commandments, included REST in that BIG TEN listing. This commandment is surrounded by some heavy hitters, but God included His instruction regarding the need to REST in this list of heavyweights.

    In "Take the Day Off," Robert Morris unveils God's plan of renewal, it's benefits, and it's precious promises. Our heavenly Father has provided mankind with a gift, the gift of REST. But! Somehow man knows better, and feels the need to outthink God. Relying on his personal experiences, his self examination, his knowledge of the Word of God, and his intimate relationship with our Creator, Pastor Morris has put forth a very timely and much needed resource that may be used to battle the consequences of living a life that is too busy to enjoy the knowledge and gifts that our Creator has given us. This book provides the reader with the direction that may lead to an eye opening understanding as to why God placed REST in His Big Ten list. Are you feeling over burdened, overwhelmed, lost in a world of busyness with seemingly no way out? If this is you, I strongly encourage you to get this book. After reading "Take the Day Off" I don't think you will never look at the Sabbath and REST the same way again!!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Hachette Book Group and I am not required to write a positive review. Books that I am interested in and which fit into the goals and vision of my website are chosen by me and my reviews are honest and independent.

    MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

    This is a very interesting book. Robert Morris knows from experience how it is to be tired, stress out, and really just completely out of it because of the demands of life. Our society has completely forgotten what it means to 'remember the sabbath' because now days, everything goes on Sunday as if it is any other day. We forget to rest.

    As I read through this book, so much of it hit right at me, because I'm with everyone else, I don't give God the one day he requires from us. I appreciate that Robert Morris is so honest as he tells of his own struggles with these issues. And gives us as Christian's what we should do in order to have that day of rest we all need to experience. I'm old enough that I remember when stores were closed on Sunday, and we would spend the afternoon after church with family and friends. People would actually visit each other on Sunday afternoons. I miss that time, and though it will never be like that again, we can choose to make the sabbath our day of rest.

    This is a book that every Christian should read! I want to read it slow, a few pages a day, to fully get the meaning of this book. If you haven't read Take the Day Off, I strongly encourage you to check out this book. And what a wonderful book to give friends and family for Christmas!

    I think we all need to be reminded of the principle of Sabbath as the world keeps us too busy and we run on empty far too often.
