In this new edition that includes a study guide, 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. Brueggemann addresses our 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. Perfect for groups or self-reflection, Sabbath as Resistance shows readers how keeping the Sabbath allows us to break this restless cycle and focus on what is truly important: God, other people, all life.
