Description

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.

Commendations

Nobody teaches us to rest. Pastor Adam Mabry - like many others - discovered the consequences the hard way. This "starter in the art of rest" explores why we find it hard to stop and makes an urgent plea for us to discover patterns and rhythms of rest before the pace and complexity of life overwhelms us. This is a book I really wish I had read when I was starting in Christian ministry.

This little jewel of a book made my heart sing. Like most of us Adam Mabry has struggled with the modern tyranny of busyness. In this short book – easily readable even by the busiest – he shows the biblical principal of rest to be a gift of grace, a taste of heaven and a counter-cultural statement of trust in our heavenly father. An inspiring and challenging read!

Clare Heath-Whyte

Author and speaker

A senior doctor once wrote to The Times, “We doctors in the treatment of nervous diseases, are compelled to provide periods of rest. Some of these periods are, I think, only Sundays in arrears.” In this excellent book, Adam Mabry shows us that rest for the Christian is not optional—it's commanded for our good. After a careful handling of a biblical theology of rest, Mabry applies God's good command in a gospel-saturated and realistic way. This book will do you good and enable to rest well in a restless world.
