Sunday, Sabbath, and the Weekend: Managing Time in a Global Culture
Spirituality that takes shape around regular Sunday and Sabbath worship is central to the historical identity of Christianity. Through the lens of this book, we see also that such a spirituality is central to nurturing a healthy, thriving society. Here fourteen contributors from diverse traditions across the spectrum of American Christianity examine how Christians and others can find needful rest through Sunday and Sabbath in managing the pressures of our 24/7 global culture.
