The Art of Rest

Full Product Description

  • Feel over-busy, or always tired?
  • This book shows how you can rest in a way that is spiritual and helpful
  • You'll learn to change your life in favour of what is really important to you
For some of us, resting seems like a waste of time—it means we're missing out on other things. For others, rest seems like a luxury—there's simply too much to do. And for almost all of us, we crave rest, but don't always know how to.

This warm, realistic, humorous book shows us the huge spiritual, emotional and physical rewards of rest.

It shows us how rest gives us time to spend with God and remember his grace. Discover how rest fuels our joy and confidence in God's sovereignty as we learn to depend on him, and not our own efforts, and are refreshed by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Adam Mabry shows us how rest helps us make space for relationships, shared experiences and moments to remember; how it liberates us from the pressure of self-reliance; how it gives us a chance to think and reflect; and how it stops us from burning out.

Finally, this book casts a realistic vision for rest that is less rule and more rhythm—less onerous restriction and more liberating art form. Adam Mabry helps us to learn the 'art of rest' with some practical suggestions.

The world never stops. But we need to. And as Christians we can by having faith to hit pause and experience the rich rewards of God-given rest.
