Walter Brueggemann is widely considered to be one of the most influential theologians of our time. So who better to help us get a handle on the idea of the Sabbath. Especially as he wrote the fascinating and insightful Sabbath as Resistance. That’s right, Sabbath is so much more than simply taking a day off, it’s an intentional and creative act of resistance.

If you want more from Walter, then dive right into his many wonderful books. By all means, kick things off with Sabbath as Resistance (I found it really helpful), but make sure you check out The Prophetic Imagination, and then just work through all the rest of his books! – Tim
