Publisher's Description

Are you worn out and in need of rest? It seems we're all running on empty. Surely, that's not God's plan for us. The Gift of Rest looks at God's perspective of rest from Genesis through Revelation and gives you freedom to embrace the gift of rest.

Editorial Reviews

“Rest is like the handle on a mug: the empty space is what makes it useful. And Crickett Keeth knows how much we need those empty spaces in our lives. Her Bible studies have long been my favorites, with their emphasis on digging into the text and applying it where readers live. And her study on rest is no exception. In this study readers encounter the Sabbath-making God who calls followers to rest, reflect, and find rejuvenation in contrast to our crazy, fast-paced, get-identity-from-doing-stuff world." —Dr. Sandra Glahn, author of the Coffee Cup Bible Study series, seminary professor In our hurried, hectic, iPhone world, many of us are desperately in need of rest. We know it, yet we continue to run through life at break-neck speed resulting in physical, emotional, and spiritual exhaustion, burn out, and stressed relationships. What will it take to slow us down? Crickett Keeth’s The Gift of Rest thoroughly explores the varied aspects of God’s mandated rest in an eight-week, discovery-style, application-oriented Bible study. This study will persuade women to reject today’s typical destructive life pace and trade it in for a productive, healthy, all-in, Christ-centered lifestyle instead. Consider the difference that could make!!! —Dr. Sue Edwards, Author of The Discover Together Bible Study Series and co-author of Organic Mentoring; Associate Professor of Educational Ministries and Leadership, Dallas Theological Seminary “This is the kind of study I look for as a small-group leader. The Gift of Rest presents sound doctrine in a user-friendly format that enriched my personal understanding of resting in the Father’s love. I look forward to using it in our group to discuss the Bible-based connections Crickett draws between rest, contentment, trust, and peace.” —Jim Davis, author of Why Me? (And Why that’s the Wrong Question) “In a frenetic age, bustling about trying to yank an extra minute or two out of already strained hours, we end up thinking rest is a luxury we can’t afford. But that’s a dead end. Rest is as much a gift for our renewal as grace is a gift for our redemption. The Gift of Rest isn’t just for those tired of being tired. It’s for those who don’t know what they’re missing trying to do it all.” —Dr. Cole Huffman, Senior Pastor, First Evangelical Church, Memphis, Tennessee The Gift of Rest rocked my world! I often feel like the clown in the circus spinning plates on tall poles— three kids, high-school ministry, school PTA, and my church women’s ministry. I am always busy! Crickett’s study taught me that when I trust and obey God, my soul finds rest. In this busy phase of life, I'm striving to embrace the gift of rest. —Bethany Scoggins, busy mom, Women’s Ministry leader, and Young Life leader The Gift of Rest is simple to follow, yet full of rich, biblical teaching. Crickett points readers to Scripture so they can discover for themselves why rest is important and then develop an action plan to implement it in their busy lives. An excellent resource for personal use or in a small group. —Sue Hume, Women’s Ministry Leader, Grace Church, Eden Prairie, Minnesota
