Description

From the first page of history, God has been teaching us about rest.

Twenty-first-century Americans often approach Genesis as a science manual. How did it all happen? But the ancient Israelites were concerned with different questions--questions of purpose . . . who and why. Bible study teacher and lifelong student Rachel Booth Smith helps us focus on the who of Creation so that we can find meaning and rest for our souls.

God set up a perfect home for us full of provision, significance, and purpose. In Rest Assured, Rachel becomes a holy eavesdropper, leaning over ancient Israelites' shoulders, listening as God reveals Himself to Israel. As we anchor ourselves in His character, we find a rest that grounds us when we're faced with the daily crises of life, big and small.

Do you feel heavy or anxious? Work, kids, finances, the future, the past, the state of the world can all threaten your joy, hope, and trust. Using archaeology findings, language discoveries, and biblical study, Smith shares theologically rich insights that bring us into the rest we need, the rest we crave--the rest for which we were made.

A life of rest changes everything. This book is for all who desire to have a life of flourishing, rooted in sacred trust and rest.
