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
  2. Rest & Awareness
  3. Rest & Resilience
  4. Rest & Play

In our fast-paced, overworked world…

… this was a refreshing read and an excellent reminder to slow down. Too often we feel guilty about resting because we think we’re lazy and not being productive. This book argues the exact opposite: we were made to slow down and rest, just like God rests.

Culturally and Personally Engaging!

Alabaster books bring an air of freshness and new reflections while reading the Word of God and their studies books. I find myself thinking deeper and more creatively when reflecting on the images related to the chapter or topic at hand.

Life-giving!

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.
