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.

Loved the aesthetics. Enjoyed reading the books as it gave me new perspectives and a deeper understanding of how the oingdom of God works.

What a breath of fresh air! This topic is largely neglected within Christian circles and yet critically important to finding God’s presence, peace, and perspective on rest and Sabbath. The artwork is beautiful and brings additional meaning & revelation as well. I immediately started reading it to my fiancé as I was so excited to share it, and I bought a copy for my best friend. My hope is that the truths found in this book will change our family’s rhythm of life and allow us to shift into an approach to rest that is abundant & in line with God’s design.

Aesthetic / Perfect

Purchased this as a gift for my uncle. He loves to read and loves books. And he loved it … he is studying proverbs so I got the psalms and proverbs books. Great quality and so well made!

Thoughtful and inspiring

Love this book! Have been reading it at night as a way to wind down and reflect. Gorgeous photos, paper, and binding as you would expect from Alabaster. Highly recommend.
