Widely-acclaimed author Mark Buchanan states that what we've really lost is "the rest of God-the rest God bestows and, with it, that part of Himself we can know only through stillness." Stillness as a virtue is a foreign concept in our society, but there is wisdom in God's own rhythm of work and rest. Jesus practiced Sabbath among those who had turned it into a dismal thing, a day for murmuring and finger-wagging, and He reminded them of the day's true purpose: liberation-to heal, to feed, to rescue, to celebrate, to lavish and relish life abundant. With this book, Buchanan reminds us of this and gives practical advice for restoring the sabbath in our lives.

Rest is a largely neglected theme escaping Old Testament studies, yet is notably prominent in the text itself, arising at many of the key moments of the Old Testament--the creation, the flood, the conquest and exile of the land, the covenant with David, and the construction of the temple. Haydock explores the ways in which God's rest interacts with the direction of the narrative, noting also its role in shaping both Israel's worship and their messianic expectation. In this fascinating study, Haydock considers the importance and place of rest in the ancient Mesopotamian worldview, arguing that Israel's theology of rest played an important part in their message to the nations. This message of a sovereign and gracious God offering his rest to all peoples contrasts sharply with the nations' false perception of how "rest" was to be experienced and enjoyed.

Encountering the Rest of God

perplexing aspect of early Christianity is the rapid and widespread abandonment of the practice of rest on Sabbath, as in the Jewish matrix of the Christian movement, even though the seven-day week was retained for time-keeping purposes. It is beyond dispute that this occurred, but there is no unanimity on the question of how and why. There is no passage in the sources which offers an explicit answer. The author uses the classic tools of the historical-critical method, supplemented by newer approaches, for a thorough exegetical examination of the relevant passages in the New Testament and other Christian writings of the time. The investigation demonstrates that previous models to explain the rapid disappearance of the Sabbath as a Christian worship practice have been inadequate. A more nuanced, polycausal model is proposed. This sheds light on unity and diversity in the Christian movement as it began its development from a sect within Judaism to a faith community with its own identity.

The world is filled with the walking dead. They’re not fully dead. They’re kind of alive—walking, talking, and drinking coffee. But their hearts have become deadened. Their souls are dry, yearning to be sparked alive by God’s love. Many of us are like this: sleepwalking through life, inadvertently missing hidden invitations from God in our daily lives. God wants to love each of us back to life. The question is: Will you let Him?

Israel Harel casts a completely new light on the New Testament book of Hebrews that will educate even the most seasoned Christ follower. The author explores the backdrop of Jewish culture and concerns into which the Epistle to the Hebrews was written, unpacking the references to Jewish history to help the modern reader (Jew or Gentile) better understand what Jesus has done for each of us. He explores the questions and difficulties addressed in the epistle, while discussing long-standing trends in Judaism and how Jesus fulfills Biblical Judaism and transcends Rabbinical Judaism. Through these discussions, one theme comes through loud and clear: the Epistle to the Hebrews is a strong call to intimacy with God in the Holy of Holies. It is a call to enter into the Sabbath rest of God, into the place where He is all in all. srael Harel was born to a secular Jewish family who came as pioneers to the Land of Israel in the early 20th century. Israel heard the Gospel for the first time as a hippie in the early seventies. Not wanting anybody to tell him what to do, he ran away from God for six years. After living homeless in the streets and spending two and a half years in a mental hospital, Israel finally gave himself up and surrendered to Jesus, who did a great work of healing in Israel's life. He came back to Israel and helped pioneer many Evangelistic works around the country. He has also reached out to lost people for the Lord in South Africa and the US. After serving in foreign lands for ten years he came back to Israel and led the work of starting a new Hebrew speaking Messianic congregation in the Jezreel valley (Armageddon) in north Israel. Israel has used his teaching and speaking gifts in many parts of the world. He is married to Shlomit and has three sons.

Sundays are feast days. But sometimes, that's awfully hard to remember. We often get too busy trying to keep track of all the things we're "not supposed to" do. Yet, as Stuart Bryan explains, this is not the emphasis of Scripture. The Lord's Day is a day of freedom, a day defined by thanksgiving--for God's grace, for the opportunities to share that grace with others, and for the hope we have in the glorious rest to come. A Taste of Sabbath is a short defense of Sabbath celebration, which includes practical suggestions as to how to better remember the rest which the Lord has given us.

The Family Guide is the perfect complement to Work and Rest God’s Way! The discipline to work can be challenging for all of us, but motivating children to work is especially difficult. As a father of eight, Pastor Scott knows what is needed. Let him help you teach your children what the Bible says about work. The Family Guide is the culmination of what has been successful for him and his wife, Katie. They have learned from families they respect, books they’ve read, videos they’ve watched, conferences they’ve attended, and—most importantly—trial and error. Inside you will find: —Four bonus chapters not found in Work and Rest God’s Way, with accompanying workbook material —Questions to help each family member find the blessings God has for them in their labor —Application assignments for each chapter to help you utilize the material Christian family books are hard to find. If you’re looking for Christian workbooks for adults or a Christian workbook for kids, look no further! Inside you will find a family workbook parents and kids can enjoy working through together. This is also a wonderful resource for group Bible studies. Whether you’re a man or woman, young or old, parent or child, married or single, this guide will enable you to enjoy both work and rest as God intended. It’s not a Bible verse: “Do your best,” but this truth is communicated in Scripture. Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might,” and Colossians 3:23-24 says, “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” The Family Guide will help you do your best and learn what is the work of a Christian. Discover joy and purpose in all you do! Endorsed by prominent ministry leaders: “God commands us to work. And God also commands us to rest. Scott LaPierre shows how the Bible discloses the sinfulness of laziness and ‘idleness,’ and he unpacks the contrary Biblical virtue of ‘diligence.’ But he also shows how our relationship to work can become sinful. Workaholism turns work into an addiction that can lead to burnout and idolatry. The Biblical principle of the Sabbath counters those tendencies with physical rest, the cessation of busyness necessary for spiritual devotion, and the life of faith, in which we realize that our salvation comes not by our work, but by resting in Christ. Work and Rest God’s Way is a welcome contribution as Christians rediscover the doctrine of vocation in all of its practicality and spiritual richness.” —Dr. Gene Edward Veith—Provost at Patrick Henry College, director of the Cranach Institute at Concordia Theological Seminary, and author of God at Work “In Work and Rest God’s Way Scott LaPierre wonderfully reconciles the very real tension between work and rest by resisting the celebrated extremes of workaholism and play by relying on the principles and patterns laid out in God’s Word. In an age when so many are sacrificing so much to gain so very little—manifested through materialism on the one hand and hedonism on the other—this book will help you, especially if you’re a young man, navigate this life-altering strait.” —Kirk Smith—Church planter, pastor, and Executive Director for the Illinois Christian Home Educators (ICHE) “Scott LaPierre has produced a much-needed resource to help our churches and families recognize the blessing and purpose of work. He addresses sloth, the penalty for it and overwork and the need to rest, ultimately finding our rest in Christ.” —Gary Powers—Preaching elder and founder and CEO of Ortho Molecular Products

The Rest of Faith (1 of 4) "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down." Psalms is full of David's battle to find that resting place. In fact he had many difficulties, pressures setbacks, obstacles - all kinds of challenges, but he said “I'm never lacking, because God is my provider and my source”. He came to rest inside, in God. The kingdom of God is about rest, not works. “He that has entered into rest has ceased from his own works.” The Rest of Faith (2 of 4) Jesus said: If you're stressed out, come to Me. The answer is a person, your connection with a person, connecting with Him and learning. Technology doesn't solve problems, because the problems we really face, the core of them, are found in the heart; and in our walk with God. The reason He can teach you how to do life, is because He has an attitude of meekness, humility; and He gave an example of how to do life. The Rest of Faith (3 of 4) Stress and pressure are part of our life, and Jesus has given some clear things about how we can deal with it. When you're stressed out, anxious and uptight you don't live your best; you struggle in your relationships; there's overflow in your health. God doesn't intend us to live that way. Let's have a look what Jesus said… The Rest of Faith (4 of 4) "My presence will go with you, and I will give you Rest" Rest is a peace in our heart, in spite of the turmoil around us. We're live in an age which is in turmoil; people are anxious & fearful - stressed out. Rest is a gift to us. It's an experience you can come into, when no matter what's going on around you, you can still be at peace in your heart. This is something God gives to us. It comes out of His presence being with us; and out of learning how to let go issues to Him. We're called to bring peace into wherever we go.

The answer is found in understanding "Bible Threads". A Bible thread is the link or bridge that connects the stories and books.

This series addresses the indispensable threads to prepare you to read your Bible enthusiastically with great understanding; and to allow you the joy of discovering other threads for yourself through your own daily Bible study. This volume offers a power packed, Jesus inspired, potentially life-changing resource as it presents the Bible to us in its simplest form. Starting at the beginning, the author walks us through a new "perspective" and a new "context" for how we understand and interpret what we read. It is designed for (a) those of us new to the Bible, and (b) those who never received a comprehensive overview of the Bible that makes sense to them. In this volume, the author lays out the structure and the over all story - the big picture - of the Bible. This presentation is designed to broaden the context for how we interpret and unify the various books and stories. At the completion of this volume, you will be encouraged to read your Bible and to study it more intelligently with much more confidence and with a satisfying sense of accomplishment.

Entering The Sabbath Rest is a revelation of God’s heart and plan for us. Writing candidly about his own burnout experience in pastoral ministry, Mark Banyard walks his readers through a Biblical understanding of the love of God and His Sabbath rest, as he shares how he found healing and freedom through God’s love. This edition includes the companion study guide written by Dr. Ian Richardson. There is a great weariness resting upon the church today, especially on its leaders. It is a condition of the mind, body, and spirit, produced by great striving. God is speaking through his modern-day prophets once again, entreating his people to enter his rest and to abandon their false performance-driven agendas. The Sabbath rest God is calling us to is a real place we enter into because of our unshakeable confidence in God's love, and irrevocable faith in his ability to advance his Kingdom through us. This is the rest of God.
