Sabbath – Best Christian Books!

Sabbath Best Christian Books

For the recent Labor Day holiday, we posted a list of the best Christian books on Labor, Work, and Vocation. But in the rhythms of Christian life, habits of Sabbath and rest are similarly important.  

Here are some very helpful books for Christians (and it’s probably more accurate to call these books for Christians, not Christian books, as some were written by Jews and people of other faiths) on Sabbath, rest, and leisure.

Sabbath Best Christian BooksSabbath (The Ancient Practices  Series)

Dan Allender

What would you do for twenty-four hours if the only criteria were to pursue your deepest joy?

Dan Allender’s lyrical book about the Sabbath expels the myriad myths about this “day of rest,” starting with the one that paints the Sabbath as a day of forced quiet, spiritual exercises, and religious devotion and attendance. This, he says, is at odds with the ancient tradition of Sabbath as a day of delight for both body and soul. Instead, the only way we can make use of the Sabbath is to see God’s original intent for the day with new eyes. In Sabbath, Allender builds a case for delight by looking at this day as a festival that celebrates God’s re-creative, redemptive love using four components:

  • Sensual glory and beauty
  • Ritual
  • Communal feasting
  • Playfulness

Now you can experience the delight of the Sabbath as you never have before—a day in which you receive and extend reconciliation, peace, abundance, and joy.
