    Abstract:
    The Subversive Sabbath, as the subtitle indicates, is mostly a semi-popular and pastorally written book which aims to suggest to readers the surprising power Sabbath observance can bring to busy 21st century Christians. “How is the Sabbath subversive?,” asks the author, and answers by effectively giving the gist of the book: “Sabbath is an alternative lifestyle that goes against every-thing our world knows” (p. xi). Thus, the pragmatic orientation of the book is established from the beginning.
