I first heard about this book from Dr. Sleeth when I met him last year. When he told me that he was writing a book about the Sabbath, I was intrigued and looked forward to seeing what he had to say on the subject. I wasn't disappointed. Over the years the concept of Sabbath rest has become more important to me and this book does nothing but educate and reaffirm why. This isn't a book written for scholars, but it is a book from which scholars could greatly benefit (take a break!). Fun. Easy to read. Filled with memorable quotes. This is not a "self-help" book, but rather it is a book about how God has designed His creation to take time to be Holy and rest in Him. This is a greatly neglected subject in church. Protestants are known for their "work ethic" not their "rest ethic." As Dr. Sleeth points out, "24/6 is not about working hard and playing hard. It is about working hard and stopping." Every year I'm at a loss for gifts to buy for Christmas. After finishing this book, things just got easier.
