The concept and practice of Sabbath was a revolutionary activity in the promised land. How did it turn into a set of rigid rules about not selling liquor or opening stores on Sunday and forgotten by most Christians?

Walter Brueggemann has written an original four-session study for thoughtful Christians about the origins and radical call of Sabbath titled "Sabbath as Resistance." It is a practice that was designed to protect the marginalized and remind all of us that we are not God. It involved certain forms of resistance to the consumerist society of ancient Israel that are more relevant today than ever.

Dorothy Bass has written an original two-session study titled "Sabbath Practices." She offers thoughtful Christians concrete ways to reclaim these and shows how our lives can be enriched and faith deepened as we relearn them.

Carol Wehrheim has written all the Leader's Guides.

We suggest that your group begin with the Brueggemann four-session unit and then study Dorothy Bass's two-session "Sabbath Practices" unit. However, both can be used entirely independently.

Walter Brueggemann is William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary. An ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, he is the author of dozens of books, including Sabbath as Resistance: Saying No to the Culture of Now, Journey to the Common Good, and Chosen? Reading the Bible amid the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.


Carol A. Wehrheim is the author of Getting It Together: Spiritual Practices for Faith, Family, and Work; The Baptism of Your Child; and Giving Together: A Stewardship Guide for Families. She is an award-winning Christian educator in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and was named Educator of the Year in 2001 for the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators.


Dorothy C. Bass is Director of the Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith ( www.practicingourfaith.org< /a>). She is the author of Receiving the Day: Christian Practices for Opening the Gift of Time and the editor of Practicing Our Faith: A Way of Life for a Searching People and several other books.
