Sabbath Gift

Share the gift of Sabbath with your community

The Sabbath Gift highlights the advantages of taking a weekly day of rest. Beginning with an exploration of the need for a Sabbath and what a secular Sabbath might look like, author Dr Bruce Manners guides the reader through Jewish and Christian thoughts and experiences of the Sabbath, painting a picture of the delight God offers to all.

Written in Dr Bruce Manners’ friendly and engaging style, and with local offers and links to the Sabbath Gift challenge and website, this book is suitable for sharing with both secular and religious members of the community.

The Sabbath Gift tract is a smaller, condensed version of the Sabbath Gift sharing book, introducing readers to Sabbath and the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of a day of rest. The tract includes an offer to request the sharing book.

Preorders have now closed but the book will be available from Adventist Book Centres in due course.
