About the Book

With this book, Buchanan reminds readers of the Sabbath's true purpose--to heal, to feed, to rescue, to celebrate, to lavish, and to relish life abundantly. He gives practical advice for restoring the Sabbath in Christians' lives.

Book Synopsis

Many of us have endless demands and stifling daily routines. Learn why Sabbath is essential to our full humanity and faith, a rhythm of work and rest set by God that if restored to our lives will bring prolonged life, enriched relationships, increased fruitfulness, and abundant joy.

We are waylaid by endless demands and stifling routines. Even our vacations have a panicky, task-like edge to them. "If I only had more time," is the mantra of our age. But is this the real problem? Pastor Mark Buchanan believes that what we've really lost is the rest of God--the rest God bestows and, with it, that part of himself we can know only through stillness.

In The Rest of God, you'll:

  • Form a deeper relationship with God by understanding Sabbath's true purpose
  • Learn how Sabbath allows us to live more fully into our status as free people, released from the grueling, incessant demands of life
  • Connect Sabbath to the ultimate rest--heaven
  • Receive practical advice for restoring Sabbath in your life

With this book, Buchanan reminds us that Sabbath is about much more than going to church on Sunday. It's about the much-needed time to be still. The gift of Sabbath is essential to our full humanity and faith. God, knowing that and knowing how easily we might neglect it, made it a command. Begin your own journey of restoration and renewal!
