The Rest of Life

Ben Witherington

$27.99

Paperback
When was the last time you heard a sermon on the theological importance of play? What do rest, eating, studying, and sex have to do with the kingdom of God? Strangely, although these activities generate a great deal of interest and take up a considerable portion of our lives, they seldom receive detailed theological or ethical discussion from a biblical point of view.

A mixed-bag of ideas
3 stars By Hoa, Mar 29 2018
Witherington covers several aspects of the Christian life he considers to be neglected among theologians today - rest, eating, Bible study, sex and play. There are some excellent gems of wisdom in this book, but the reader may come away feeling that it lacks cohesion, especially as the style varies from chapter to chapter.
