Marva Dawn – Introductory Reading Guide

August 20, 2016 — Leave a comment



Today is the birthday of Marva Dawn, one of the theologians who has been most influential for our congregation at Englewood Christian Church.

To mark the occasion, we offer the following introductory reading guide to her most significant works.

We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and offered a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve also included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.


3. Keeping the Sabbath Wholly: Ceasing, Resting, Embracing, Feasting


Perhaps the best known of Marva Dawn’s books in the church-at-large. She takes Sabbath very seriously and explains theologically why we should too.
