"Wayne Muller's call to remember the Sabbath is not only rich, wise and poetic, it may well be the only salvation for body and soul in a world gone crazy with busyness and stress."
-- Joan Borysenko, author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind and A Woman's Book of Life
"This is a book that may save your life. Sabbath offers a surprising direction for healing to anyone who has ever glimpsed emptiness at the heart of a busy and productive life."

From the Inside Flap

In today's world, with its relentless emphasis on success and productivity, we have lost the necessary rhythm of life, the balance between work and rest. Constantly striving, we feel exhausted and deprived in the midst of great abundance. We long for time with friends and family, we long for a moment to ourselves.
Millennia ago, the tradition of Sabbath created an oasis of sacred time within a life of unceasing labor. Now, in a book that can heal our harried lives, Wayne Muller, author of the spiritual classic How, Then, Shall We Live?, shows us how to create a special time of rest, delight, and renewal--a refuge for our souls.
We need not even schedule an entire day each week. Sabbath time can be a Sabbath afternoon, a Sabbath hour, a Sabbath walk. With wonderful stories, poems, and suggestions for practice, Muller teaches us how we can use this time of sacred rest to refresh our bodies and minds, restore our creativity, and regain our birthright of inner happiness.

Format: Hardcover
In a culture marked by workaholism and exhaustion, Wayne Muller has offered a healing and inspiring word. Having searched the wisdom of many spiritual traditions, Muller offers a thoughtful and compelling invitation to reclaim the practice of Sabbath-keeping in ways that honor the rhythm of creation and are not just legalistic rule-keeping. Muller offers practical helps for recovering the rhythm of life, as well as making connections with the theological understandings of several religious traditions. His book will be a welcome companion for all who are seeking more balance in their lives, and would be a good choice for study groups in churches or spiritual life groups.
