Description

What would you do for twenty-four hours if the only criteria were topursue your deepest joy?

Dan Allender s lyrical book about the Sabbath expels the myriad myths about this day ofrest, starting with the one that paints the Sabbath as a day of forced quiet, spiritual exercises, and religious devotion and attendance. This, he says, is at odds with the ancient tradition ofSabbath as a day of delight for both body and soul. Instead, the only way we can make useof the Sabbath is to see God s original intent for the day with new eyes. In Sabbath, Allenderbuilds a case for delight by looking at this day as a festival that celebrates God s re-creative, redemptive love using four components:

  • Sensual glory and beauty
  • Ritual
  • Communal feasting
  • Playfulness

Now you can experience the delight of the Sabbath as you never have before a day inwhich you receive and extend reconciliation, peace, abundance, and joy.
