‘This is not only a very beautiful book to read, it is a very important one.’

Paula Gooder


‘This book is a series of invitations to be still, to go deep, and to hear again the songs that renew our life, the hidden heartbeat that sustains us, and if we will let it, brings us refreshment and renewal. Just dipping into this once a week could be the beginning of your Sabbath renewal.’

Malcolm Guite


‘Timely, necessary and quietly earth-shaking.’

Rachel Mann

Deep within the woods, amid the harry and hassle of endlessly proliferating demands – from work and loved ones, social media and new technologies, as well as by church and other organisations to which we belong – lies God’s invitation to Sabbath, a clearing in which to pause, to breathe, to find light, harmony and regeneration.

In this beautiful meditation on the theme of Sabbath, Nicola Slee helps us to discover this treasure within ourselves, guided by poetry (her own and that of Wendell Berry), journal extracts and space for you, the reader, to record your own thoughts and reflections along the way.

Nicola Slee is a poet, an acclaimed author in the fields of feminist and practical theology, spirituality and prayer, Director of Research at the Queen’s Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education, Birmingham, Professor of Feminist Practical Theology at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, and Visiting Professor at the University of Chester.
