Each book in this series provides an in-depth look at a major recurring theme in the Bible and its lasting theological influence.

This book examines the biblical sabbath, sabbath-year, and jubilee traditions as part of a broader effort to reflect theologically on these challenges and points to ways we might build a global ethic of economic and environmental justice.
