24/6 by Matthew Sleeth

This book made me reminisce about my childhood.  I remember a time with there wasn’t anything to do on Sunday except go to church and then go home where our choices were to watch one of the three channels available to us, read a book, or play outside.  To take it a step further, these were the same days where most people didn’t call you on the telephone before 9 am or after 9 pm unless it was an emergency.

Fast forward to the 21st century and as Sleeth points out, we are a 24/7 generation.  I love the way he provides all the scriptural references related to keeping the Sabbath holy.  I love the way he lays out the reasons for keeping a day of rest and his plan for a 24/6 lifestyle.

This is a great book!  It is a quick read and is entertaining with Sleeth’s stories from his experiences as a physician.  While some people might take issue with whether the Sabbath is on Saturday or Sunday, and Sleeth emphasizes simply designating a day of rest, I agree the most important aspect is to consistently observe a day of rest. 

I highly recommend this book for whoever remembers living a 24/6 lifestyle from the past, anyone who is overwhelmed and feeling like the more they work, the farther they fall behind, or anyone who is worn down.  I highly recommend you read the book, and give the 24/6 lifestyle a try.  The rat race will always be available if you want to go back to it.

    Keeping the sabbath is so important that it is a commandment, yet we don’t adhere to it nor do we talk about it in church. I think it is a great idea to keep a day for the Lord and to keep it holy. Thanks for the review! I love the new website too!
