What are you reading?

In a recent interview I was asked, “What are you reading?”  I am actually reading several books; however, the one that makes most sense to mention is, “The Rest of God” by Mark Buchanan.  A must read!

Click on “STORE” at the top of my blog with direct link to amazon where you can see all the books on my shelf as well as recommended readings.

Widely-acclaimed author Mark Buchanan states 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.” Stillness as a virtue is a foreign concept in our society, but there is wisdom in God’s own rhythm of work and rest. Jesus practiced Sabbath among those who had turned it into a dismal thing, a day for murmuring and finger-wagging, and He reminded them of the day’s true purpose: liberation-to heal, to feed, to rescue, to celebrate, to lavish and relish life abundant.

With this book, Buchanan reminds us of this and gives practical advice for restoring the sabbath in our lives.
