Walter Brueggemann: Sabbath as Resistance

This volume is more devotional than many of his other works and is intentionally stated as being written for such original purposes (xvi). It reads like a series of related individual exegetically informed theological reflections on the manner of Sabbath as resistance meant to facilitate discussion around each topic. It could be used for a weekly Bible study or small group to great benefit in order to carry conversations about the Ten Commandments and specifically “Sabbath keeping” forward into more fruitful directions that apply across contexts.
