I received a copy of RHYTHMS OF REST: FINDING THE SPIRIT OF THE SABBATH IN A BUSY WORLD by Shelly Miller from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
I admit that my family and I do not always adhere to the rules of the Sabbath. I always think of it as a day of rest – doing nothing, just relaxing. That isn’t always possible when you work retail (as my mom does and I used to do), or when you have tons of housework to catch up on. This book opened my eyes to new ways of considering the Sabbath. The books guides you step-by-step into keeping with the Sabbath. Just as the title says, it talks about how busy our worlds are. It can’t be an excuse, but it can be something to think about seriously. I also like that it doesn’t make you feel guilty for not honoring the Sabbath, but instead helps you to find the correct path.
If you’re feeling depressed or overwhelmed, or just looking for some peace, then read this book as well. Each section is short, so you can read them in different sittings, or you can finish it all in one sitting. Once you start reading, you won’t want to stop.
