Keri Wyatt Kent invites readers to rediscover the ancient practice of Sabbath in this practical and accessible book. Kent’s experiences as a retreat leader and a journalist collide as she offers true, interview-based stories along with scripturally based advice and guidance on how to live in a rhythm of work and rest she calls “Sabbath simplicity.” Based on what Jesus taught about Sabbath and how he practiced it, Kent explores six aspects of Sabbath as Christian spiritual practice: resting, reconnecting, revising, pausing, playing, and praying. These are the antidote to our restlessness, isolation, and our hurried lives, workaholism, and self-absorption. Living a nonlegalistic, sanely paced, God-focused life leads us to freedom and grace, joy and connection. A group study guide is included, making this book an excellent choice for small groups.

    " improved my relationship with God and my quality of life by making me consider the sabbath, and rethink my priorities and what's going on behind my compulsive busyness. "

    " This is, in my opinion, Keri's best book. The subject is quite compelling in our busy, frantic paced world. It is well researched, well written and applies to anyone's life, not just the mom's. "

    " This was a very good reminder. It may have been meant more for the soccer mom than for me, but it was a great reminder. She also made some good practical suggestions and overall it was biblical. "

About the Narrator

Pam Ward, an AudioFile Earphones Award–winning narrator, found her true calling reading books for the blind and physically handicapped for the Library of Congress’ Talking Books program. The fact that she can work with Blackstone Audio from the beauty of the mountains of Southern Oregon is an unexpected bonus.
