This book takes a holistic approach to work, life, and leisure. Arguing that each part of daily life should support a strong spiritual life.
He advocates for an approach to work that “builds for the Kingdom of God” and views rest as not just refuelling for more work but for sake of worship, enjoyment, and becoming more like God, who rested after creating the heavens and the earth.
This book is filled with candour and has a lovely and informal tone, Comer injects humour throughout despite the grandiose message. Comer wraps up his intricate argument with quotes from the Bible, as well as such writers as N.T. Wright and Dallas Willard, in support of his view that our redemptive work, alongside purposeful rest, prepares us to reign as God’s servants in the new creation that will be resurrected after evil is destroyed.
We highly recommend this read….
