How do we experience rest? Our new book explores this question and its qualities for our lives, rhythms, and conventions today. 

God rests. From the very beginning, rest is marked with sacred significance among all of creation. God calls individuals and communities alike into lives, rhythms, and conventions of rest. More than a mere afternoon nap, rest is a holy orientation and divine chronology that completes life as we know it. Just as God rests, we rest with God.

This book is meant to move us towards rest, into recovering its wisdom and consequence in our lives. As we contemplate and practice these many qualities of rest, may our personal lives be rejuvenated, our families strengthened, and our communities reoriented towards justice and peace. And may we rest with God. Amen.

  1. Rest & God

Beautiful book

I love the texture of the book as well as the photographs. The overall hues and quality of the photos are soothing and pleasing to look at. I love that these photos can be used to show God’s beauty. Also, the contents of this book is what I’ve been needing for a while but only recently realized.

Such an essential book - especially in this time!

Towards Rest is a beautifully written and designed book that I'll reread over and over again and gift/recommend to others! I fell in love with the title before I even read the book, recognizing a deep longing for rest that ached in my soul. Ever since learning about the Shemitah year that we're currently in, I've been looking for ways to pursue rest and asking God about what it means to rest in Him while living my life, taking care of kids, pursuing work, etc. This book is one of the resources that came to me during my exploration of rest...learning to abide and not strive. I'm so grateful for this book and all who made it possible. I recommend it highly to all who seek rest in Jesus in the midst of our hurried lives. It is essential for our spirit, soul and body to flourish.
