How do we experience rest? Our new book explores this question and its qualities for our lives, rhythms, and conventions today.
God rests. From the very beginning, rest is marked with sacred significance among all of creation. God calls individuals and communities alike into lives, rhythms, and conventions of rest. More than a mere afternoon nap, rest is a holy orientation and divine chronology that completes life as we know it. Just as God rests, we rest with God.
This book is meant to move us towards rest, into recovering its wisdom and consequence in our lives. As we contemplate and practice these many qualities of rest, may our personal lives be rejuvenated, our families strengthened, and our communities reoriented towards justice and peace. And may we rest with God. Amen.

Deepen Your Experience With God
Designing Alabaster Bibles start with an in-depth study of scripture. We explore key themes, historical context, and author intent. We hope our design and imagery deepen your experience with God.
A Beautiful Reading Experience
Reading the Bible can feel intimidating. In common Bibles, the text is small and condensed, the pages are thin. Alabaster Bibles combines imagery, design, and craftsmanship into the full text of each book of the Bible—to create a visually beautiful reading experience.
Beauty matters in our understanding of who God is. Every aspect of our books is carefully considered. Original artwork from around the world, typography, layout design and negative space are thoughtfully weaved into each book of the Bible. Printed on quality paper using FSC-certified, environmentally friendly practices.
I really liked that the words were not cramped together, making reading easier and more comfortable.
I use it as a room fragrance. I like the scent! :)
