“But, Erin,” you ask, “why bother?” Indeed, why bother with Sabbath Rest Book Talk?

  • Because if you only read non-fiction, you’re gonna have a hard time staying human.
  • Because if you only read non-fiction, you’re not feeding the part of you created for parable.
  • Because if you don’t think about the fiction you’ve read, you’re letting a part of your soul starve.
  • Because if you don’t learn from story, you’re not fully living out your humanity.
