Embracing Rhythms of Work and Rest: From Sabbath and Sabbatical and Back Again

"God gave us the Sabbath. Jesus taught us that we weren’t made for the Sabbath but that Sabbath was made for us. Ruth Haley Barton reminds us that Sabbath time is our time, our chance to rest, to worship God, to forgive each other, to taste a wee bit of heaven, and to be more in sympathy with all that is, not least our own lives."
Ronald Rolheiser (from foreword)

Why you should pre-order a book?

You may think it’s just a small thing, but pre-ordering a book can make a big difference! Preorder numbers increase visibility on Amazon and determine how many books are ordered by bookstores. Show your support for Ruth by helping us lay the groundwork for an impactful entrance of her new book.
Note: Many book stores including Amazon offer a “preorder price guarantee” which means if you preorder a book and the price drops, you will get the best price when the book launches.
