(Top Christian Books on Sleep and Rest)
1) Surrendered Sleep: A Biblical Perspective
Sleep was God’s idea! Surrendered Sleep discusses the spiritual component of sleep from a Christian worldview.
The reader will explore spiritual principles to deal with specific sleep issues and understand a biblical framefork for how to tackle insomnia and sleep deprivation. This work focuses on specific attitudes that can surface as one lays down to rest.
2) And so to Bed…: A Biblical View of Sleep
Sleep is part of our created humanity, a good gift from God to be treasured and enjoyed; an earthly picture of a spiritual reality.
In this reflection on sleep, Reynolds reflects on what the Bible has to say about sleep and rest, and how that can impact not only your night but your life. He includes his suggestions for turning off and enjoying rest.
3) The Rest of God: Restoring Your Soul by Restoring Sabbath
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.
4) Rhythms of Rest: Finding the Spirit of Sabbath in a Busy World
Sabbath-keeping not only brings physical refreshment, it restores the soul. God commands us to “remember the Sabbath,” but is it realistic in today’s fast-paced culture?
In this warm and helpful book, Shelly Miller dispels legalistic ideas about Sabbath and shows how even busy people can implement a rhythm of rest into their lives–whether for an hour, a morning, or a whole day. With encouraging stories from people in different stages in life, Miller shares practical advice for having peaceful, close times with God.
5) Zeal without Burnout
Thousands of people leave Christian ministry every month. They have not lost their love for Christ, or their desire to serve him. But for one reason or another, they are exhausted and simply cannot carry on.
Christopher Ash knows this experience all too well. As a pastor of a growing church, and then in his role training people for ministry, he has found himself on the edge of burnout a number of times, and has pastored many younger ministers who have reached the end of their tether.
6) Reset: Living a Grace-Paced Life in a Burnout Culture
These are the words of many Christian men on the brink of burnout or in the midst of breakdown. They are exhausted, depressed, anxious, stressed, and joyless.
Their time is spent doing many good things, but their pace is unsustainable— lacking the regular rest, readjustment, and recalibration they need.
7) The Biblical vision of Sabbath economics
Biblical Vision, by Ched Myers, offers seven studies of the scriptural views of Jubilee justice and God’s Dream of enough for everyone.
It “reads the Bible economically in order to read the economy biblically.” Now in its eighth printing, this resource is ideal for adult education and study groups. 70 pages, paper. Tell the Word Press (Church of the Savior, Washington D.C.), 2001.
8) Mudhouse Sabbath: An Invitation to a Life of Spiritual Discipline – Study EditionPrice Disclaimer
Despite her conversion from Orthodox Judaism to Christianity, Lauren Winner finds that her life is still shaped by the spiritual essences of Judaism- rich traditions and religious practices that she can’t leave behind.
In Mudhouse Sabbath, Winner illuminates eleven spiritual practices that can transform the way we view the world, and God. Whether discussing her own prayer life, the spirituality of candle-lighting, or the differences between the Jewish Sabbath and a Sunday spent at the Mudhouse, her favorite coffee shop, Winner writes with appealing honesty and rare insight.
