Praise

The Sabbath World is not merely riveting, wise, and at times breathtakingly beautiful, it just might change your life.”—Jonathan Safran Foer

“Compassionate, revealing, and deeply personal . . . destined to become a classic.”—Bruce Feiler, author of Walking the Bible

“What a brilliant idea. . . . Part history, part meditation . . . The Sabbath offers a way to live outside of time, even for a day a week—an act not just of renewal but of resistance in an obsessively over-scheduled and over-networked world.”—Los Angeles Times
 
“An intense book and intensely engaging, one that as a reader I didn’t want to end.”—Chicago Tribune
 
“Every chapter of [The Sabbath World] is a wise and winsome meditation on yet another aspect of this inexhaustible topic. … Shulevitz asks all the right questions.”—Christianity Today
 
“A book of richness and depth.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“A swift, penetrating book intent on shattering the habits of mindless workaholism.”—The New Yorker
