For god's sake rest book coverJim's persuasive book, For God's Sake, Rest! Discovering the Pleasure of His Rest, portrays his personal journey into the theology of rest and his conviction that rest enhances communion with God and vitality in ministry.

"I learned the hard way that every person needs a clearly defined day of rest each week. Without rest life and ministry lose altitude. For God's Sake, Rest! addresses three questions:

  • How can I rest so as to please God?
  • How can I rest from work?
  • How can I rest while engaged in work and life?

These questions are answered consecutively in the three sections of the book. "Once we believe that rest is truly pleasing to God and have learned to rest from work, we are ready to rest at work and all of life."
