Andy McRae, associate pastor, Sligo church, Takoma Park, Maryland.

Tilden Edwards, director of the Shalem Institute in Washington, D.C., presents a well argued case for Sabbath renewal. His blend of Bible, church history, and practical implications is intelligent, challenging, and helpful. Especially meaningful for me is a brief section of one chapter on Sabbath as play, and the laughter that locates us in God's good world. Also, his presentation of the shabbat meal rituals at the beginning and ending of Sabbath opened a fresh experience for our family when the children were small.
