Sabbath: The Ancient Practices (Paperback)
By Dan Allender, Phyllis Tickle, Bob Abernethy and William Bole
Bestselling author Dan Allender presents an insightful and fascinating look at the origins and purpose of Sabbath. Serving as volume three in "The Ancient Practices" series, "Sabbath" examines the key issues of this oft-misunderstood day of the week.
This "day of delight" as instituted by God has become a dirge for millions of believers. For many, it is simply a break from the busyness of the workweek. So, what keeps us from properly understanding, sanctifying and celebrating this important day? Allender looks at not only the history of this discipline, going all the way back to ancient Israel, but also at the modern manifestations and misunderstandings of its practice.
Allender bases his premise on the Hebrew word for rest, menuha, which is best translated as "joyous repose, tranquility, or delight." It is through this lens that he resurrects this lost definition of what it really means to rest.
A volume in the 8-book classic series, "The Ancient Practices," with a foreword by Phyllis Tickle, general editor.
