Most of us feel utterly ransacked: we're waylaid by endless demands and stifling routines. Even our vacations have a panicky, task-like edge to them. "If I only had more time," is the mantra of our age. But is this the real problem?
^^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. Sabbath is elixir and antidote. It is a gift for our sanity and wholeness - to prolong our lives, to enrich our relationships, to increase our fruitfulness, to make our joy complete. 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.


^^The gift of Sabbath is essential to our full humanity and faith, says Buchanan. Far from being some starched and dour day only to be endured, Sabbath is a day wide and bright, brimming with laughter, enough to lend beauty to all our other days. Readers will be changed forever by this pivotal book.


^^"It seems very unsabbath-like to describe a book about Sabbath with the adverb 'urgently'--but we urgently need this book. Mark Buchanan shows us that our busyness is killing us--killin us--and that Sabbath is our best cure, our best path for rest and reverence and discipleship."
--LAUREN WINNER, Best-selling author of Girl Meets God and Mudhouse Sabbath.

With this book, Buchanan reminds us of this and gives practical advice for restoring the sabbath in our lives.

PRODUCT DETAIL

Mark Buchanan

Mark Buchanan is an author and pastor living on Vancouver Island with his wife, Cheryl, and their three children, Adam, Sarah, and Nicola. Mark holds a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts from the University of British Columbia and a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Vancouvers Regent College.
He reads widely. He enjoys gardening, woodworking, fishing, cycling and scuba diving. He can often be found swimming in the clear, warm rivers of Vancouver Island, or drinking strong coffee in one of its many coffee houses. He regularly plays squash, poorly, and occasionally golfs, disastrously.


Mark is a popular conference and retreat speaker, but his deep love is the local church. He has published in several magazines and journals, including Christianity Today, Books & Culture, The Christian Century, Leadership Journal, Discipleship Journal, and others. He has written five books, Your God is Too Safe; Things Unseen; The Holy Wild; The Rest of God; and, most recently, Hidden in Plain Sight.
