ABOUT THE BOOK

Who of us knows the principle, practice and secret of rest? The author of this book thinks all too few. Our day is one of unceasing busyness, constant frenetic action, accelerated living, and consequent high stress, daily tensions and increasing hypertension. What then is the answer?

Curiously enough the writer believes it is the most ancient remedy of all which can quieten us, bring us to a place of ease, increasing our enjoyment of life, and bringing the renewal of natural energies which belong to true humanity.

 He also believes we have creative abilities which have become covered over, or even frozen by our life-fears. The old remedy is not only the Gospel of forgiveness, and genuine freedom from life's guilts, but the discovery of that rest which used to be called 'the Sabbath'. He believes that a weekly period of genuine rest is indispensable to the energies needed for our bodies, our mind, and that of us which we call 'spiritual'.

 This then is a book to be read, not only by people of faith, but also by others. Here in our 'now-time', without the aid of Eastern religions, esoteric gimmicks, and dependence upon chemical tranquilizers or transcendental meditation, we can find what we need, for 'a tranquil mind gives life to the flesh, but passion rots the bones.'
