24/6: A Prescription for a Healthier, Happier Life

Matthew Sleeth

Read By: Claton Butcher

*** Read our review of the book.

Just as the Hebrews were slaves in Egypt, we have become slaves to technology. Our technological tools allow 24-hour productivity and connectivity, give us more control, and subtly enslave us to busyness itself. The Sabbath is about restraint, about intentionally not doing everything all the time just because we can. Setting aside a day of rest helps us reconnect with our Creator and find the peace of God that passes all understanding. The Sabbath is about letting go of the controls one day a week and letting God be God. So how do we do it?

In 24/6, Dr. Matthew Sleeth describes our symptoms, clarifies the signs, diagnoses the illness, and lays out a simple plan for living a healthier, more God-centered life in a digitally dazed, always-on world. Sleeth shares how his own family was dramatically transformed when it adopted Sabbath practices and helps listeners better understand how their own lives can be transformed – physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually – by adopting the 24/6 lifestyle.

A Surprised Queenhood in the New Black Sun: The Life & Legacy of Gwendolyn Brooks

Angela Jackson

Read By: Janina Edwards

Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gwendolyn Brooks is one of the great American literary icons of the 20th century, a protégé of Langston Hughes and mentor to a generation of poets, including Sonia Sanchez, Nikki Giovanni, and Elizabeth Alexander.

Now, in A Surprised Queenhood in the New Black Sun, fellow Chicagoan and award-winning writer Angela Jackson delves deep into the rich fabric of Brooks’ work and world. Granted unprecedented access to Brooks’ family, personal papers, and writing community, Jackson traces the literary arc of this artist’s long career and gives context for the world in which Brooks wrote and published her work. It is a powerfully intimate look at a once-in-a-lifetime talent up close, using 43 of Brooks’ most soul-stirring poems as a guide.

Jackson deftly unpacks it all for both longtime admirers of Brooks and newcomers curious about her interior life. A Surprised Queenhood in the New Black Sun is a commemoration of a writer who negotiated black womanhood and incomparable brilliance with a changing, restless world – an artistic maverick way ahead of her time.
