Book Overview
Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy. Sounds nice, but how do we find rest in a 24/7 world? Just as the Hebrews were slaves in Egypt, we have become slaves to technology. Our technological tools allow 24-hour productivity and connectivity, give us more control, and subtlety enslave us to busyness itself. Sabbath is about restraint, about intentionally not doing everything all the time just because we can. Setting aside a day of rest helps us reconnect with our Creator and find the peace of God that passes all understanding. The Sabbath is about letting go of the controls one day a week and letting God be God. So how do we do it? In 24/6, Dr. Matthew Sleeth describes our symptoms, clarifies the signs, diagnoses the illness, and lays out a simple plan for living a healthier, more God-centered life in a digitally-dazed, always-on world. Sleeth shares how his own family was dramatically transformed when it adopted Sabbath practices and helps readers better understand how their own lives can be transformed - physically, emotionally, relationally and spiritually - by adopting the 24/6 lifestyle.
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy . It's the only commandment that begins with the word remember --almost as if God knew we would forget. Well, guess what? We did. And is it any wonder? Look around. Thanks to ever-improving technology, we now feel the pressure to be on twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Sure, things like smart phones, the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, and Skype help us stay connected with coworkers, family, and friends--but what about God? How can we possibly have ears to hear when we are plugged in 24/7? If we never take time to be still and know God, how can we grow into mature spiritual beings? The solution is simple. And it is endorsed by the Great Physician himself. In fact, he invented it. It's called rest. And like all good things, rest is a gift from God. Rest doesn't just happen. It takes intentionality, commitment, and restraint. Yet the rewards are indescribably amazing. In 24/6 , Dr. Matthew Sleeth provides a life-giving prescription for a healthier, more God-centered life amidst a digitally crazed, always-on world and helps us better understand how our lives can be radically transformed--physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually--by adopting a 24/6 lifestyle.
