Sabbath As Resistance:  Saying No to the Culture of Now by Walter Brueggemann, 

This book convicts me as few others have.  Bruggemann starts with why the post-Exodus people desperately needed Sabbath because of Pharaoh. He makes us confront the truth that our want more, be more, do more perspective is Pharaoh-driven.  He reminds us that our Creator God was not a workaholic and does not condone anxiety-producing work as something to be applauded. True sabbath keeping always reflects God’s image of restfulness over restlessness.  Short and to the point, I highly recommend it
