Book Review for Booksneeze

       Dan B. Allender
       Thomas Nelson Book Publishers, 2009, 213 pgs., $12.99

       Sabbath is a wonderfully inspiring book about a practise that is
       sadly losing its importance today. We seem to be so busy that
       we’re always going, doing, driving, and buying. We never seem
       to want to stop to relax or have some enjoyable down time, much
       less take the time to enjoy life.
       The Sabbath has been misunderstood for a long time. Some
       people even equate it with laziness. This “day of delight” has
       become part of our own demise. Very few of us know how to
       spend our Sabbath. Dan Allender gives the reader many different
       suggestions to try when practising the Sabbath.
       Sabbath is like a breath of fresh air. The Sabbath should not
       merely be considered a diversion from our everyday busyness.
       Instead, it is meant to be a time to enjoy in “God’s delight”.
       Allender encourages all of us to take a mini vacation once a week
       for a whole 24 hours. During this time, we should do whatever
       delights us the most. Only in this way, will we be creating a
       proper Sabbath for ourselves.
       How many of us take one day off a week for rest and renewal? I
       would venture a guess that very few of us do. We tell ourselves
       that we’re too busy to stop and take the time to relax. After
       reading Allender’s book, I am sure more readers will realize that
       not only should they make the time to take a day off to rest every
       week, but they must do so to be healthy, happy, and spiritually
       fulfilled individuals.

       I received this book from Thomas Nelson’s through, book reviewers
       program. The views in this book review are my own. I am
       disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s
       16CFR, Part 255.
