THE SABBATH BOOK REFLECTS MAJOR AVENUES OF PRAYER DIRECTIVES, HAS INSIGHTFUL AND HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS. I RECOMMEND THE BOOK TO ANY AND ALL WHO MAY BE SEEKING OUT A BOOK THAT MAY AID IN THEIR QUEST OF SPIRITUAL DIRECTION AND DESTINATION OF A HIGHER REALM. THE WRITING IS EASY ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND THE PRINT SIZE IS A DESIREABLE FONT, BOOK SIZE IS EASY ENOUGH TO PUT IN A POCKET. THE WRITER HAS A GLIMSP INTO THE HOLY SPACE THAT CAN BE ATTAINED BY ANY WHO TRULY SEEK IT OUT. A COMMITMENT IS REQUIRED TO PUT THE INFORMATION HELD UPON ITS PAGES INTO A PRACTICE. IT IS WORTH MORE THAN A SINGLE READING. CAN BE USED FOR GROUP STUDY OR PRODUCTIVE INDIVDUAL IMPROVMENT OF BEING. THE COVER HAD ME INTRIGUED WITH THE ROAD THAT AWAITS MY PRESENCE UPON IT. GO FORTH AND TRAVEL LIGHT AND WITH CONVICTION.

I read this book while on a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical sabbatical. It is the best book I have read in years... a life changer for me! I plan on coming back to it again, and again!

Finding rest renewal and delight in our busy lives. This is a wonderful little volume that now starts my day off in a very peaceful and contemplative way.
I took my time with this book. I savored each morning as I read only one of the "meditations" to start my day and then tried to remember and think about the meditation during the day some time. The Sabbath practices are doable in our every day lives and picking one or two will definitely add a new dimension to your day. And in light of the recent tragedies on our country, we could all use a little peace and Sabbath in our lives.

Format: Paperback
This easy-to-read book contains short chapters of a devotional nature, each ending with an "exercise" to help find or restore a sense of "Sabbath rest." Rather than a legalistic view to observing the Sabbath, he presents a convincing argument for applying the principles of rest into our daily lives. At times Muller seems a bit pluralistic, equating Buddhist teachings with Biblical teachings, but overall he writes in a clear, helpful style that inspires one to develop a "Sabbath sense" to one's daily week.

This book is a good introduction to rest for anyone interested in it, yet it leaves the decision up to the reader as to which day one is to keep as a rest day.
Is the Sabbath rest command subject to arbitrary decision making leaving it up to the individual to decide which day is to be kept?
When Jesus spoke to his disciples he said that the Sabbath was made for man. Now there are some who may argue that the Saturday Sabbath was for the Jewish people only because he was talking with Jews at the time, yet, Jesus, you know, the God or Yahweh of the Old Testament gave the Sabbath to the Israelites, 12 tribes not just to Judah (with Benjamin and Levi, the Jews today.)
Also, the scripture stated that man was to keep 'THE' Sabbath day holy not 'A' Sabbath day.
However, this book introduces the topic. Yet is the day for our pleasure or for God's? Although man was not created for the Sabbath to be it's slave, the Sabbath or 'THE' seventh day was created for mankind or made at the time of creation for all to keep.

I first read this book shortly after it was published and have used its gentle wisdom many times since. This year in my church we have encouraged members of our congregation to read it and the results have been very good. Most people find that it gives them a deep sense of the meaning of Sabbath and a resolve to make some changes in their own experience of Sabbath as a day of est and renewal. I highly recommend it for personal reading or for a book club.

This book is marvelous! As a psychologist, I've read a lot of wellness-oriented books, but this one truly makes one stop and look at life and what's important. It's just the message we all need in these difficult times, when it's so tough to find the balance everyone needs. After reading it, I wanted to give it to my family, friends, coworkers and patients. Each chapter has valuable insights. Muller also reaches across religious and secular sources to craft a spiritual book that does not necessarily reflect the views of any particular faith, but embraces them all. This book is truly a gift for yourself or others.

I don't know anyone who is too poor to afford the basic necessities, like food and clothes, but I do know many who are starved for downtime -- time for rest, reflection, and quiet. Once the Sabbath was viewed as a restriction -- now it sounds like an incredible, even unreachable, luxury. What happened? How did we come to confuse busyness with importance or significance? Wayne Muller's words (I have the audio edition) challenge and encourage. Make time for Sabbath! Life's too short to hurry through.
