Discussions about the Sabbath often center around moralistic laws
and arguments over whether a person should be able to play cards or
purchase liquor on Sundays. In this volume, popular author Walter
Brueggemann writes that the Sabbath is not simply about keeping
rules but rather about becoming a whole person and restoring a
whole society. Importantly, Brueggemann speaks to a 24/7 society of
consumption, a society in which we live to achieve, accomplish,
perform, and possess. We want more, own more, use more, eat more,
and drink more. Keeping the Sabbath allows us to break this
restless cycle and focus on what is truly important: God, other
people, all life. Brueggemann offers a transformative vision of the
wholeness God intends, giving world-weary Christians a glimpse of a
more fulfilling and simpler life through Sabbath observance.
