Full Product Description
Although the Sabbath was 'day 7' for God in terms of creation, it was 'day 1' for newly created humanity.
Before God asked Adam and Eve to 'do' anything, He invited them simply to 'be' - to enjoy and understand the power of rest.
The Sabbath teaches us the principle of working out of a place of 'rest' in God, not simply ?resting from work?. At it's heart are three vital truths:
1. Worship - which is God-centred
2. Worth - we are 'beings' not 'do-ings'
3. Work - we work out of a proper understanding of our purpose through a clear insight into our value before God.
John Andrews teaches that the principles contained within the concept of 'Sabbath' are not simply intended as a once-per-week experience. Rather, they express a lifestyle that should shape our whole experience of walking with and trusting God.
First Day by John Andrews was published by River Publishing in May 2011 and is our 16936th best seller. The ISBN for First Day is 9781908393012.

First DayMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is a really enjoyable well written treatise on how the Sabbath rest day is actually the first day for humankind and how the idea of work and rest come together in the Sabbath as a wonderful guide for how we should enjoy our lives and the work we do in them. Akin to St Benedict’s idea that ‘to work is to pray, and to pray is to work’ this book moves into the idea that to rest is to work and to work is to rest when we do it right, when we find ourselves resting in God as we should be, when we rest in God we find contentment in all things just as was the case in the Garden of Eden before the fall.
Short chapters, good stories and a sense of fun and humour runs through the book to make it an easy to read choice on an interesting look at how we can live our daily lives in a more restful, peaceful and enjoyable way once we stop seeing work as a chore and turn our rest period into one day in seven.
