Miller, Shelly. Rhythms of Rest: Finding the Spirit of Sabbath in a Busy World. Bloomington, MN: Bethany House Publishing. 2016.
In the busyness of today, finding Sabbath (or rest) can be very difficult. Not just physically finding the time but also mentally focusing on rest through a pattern of rhythms. In her new book, author, blogger and leader of the Sabbath Society, Shelly Miller explores the choice of rest, the consequences both of as well as the lack of intermission, and the necessity of solitude. Through personal stories, comforting thoughts and emails from her online Sabbath community, Rhythms of Rest encourages spending time with God and reflecting on His love…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
With an interesting and necessary theme to her newest book, Shelly Miller does a nice job of explaining the need, pattern and discipline of rest. Though her stories fit well, for some reason, I was not quite able to follow the process of the book nor really connect. Seeing the importance of the Sabbath, especially in the crazy schedules of life currently, I think this book has potential for certain people. Definitely a book that should be given a chance, I hope to read more of her books in the future.
