Delightful book! A classic on the Jewish view of Sabbath

Interesting that you posted this; I am currently studying Hebrew with a school in Israel, and a book I have just started reading is about "Sabbath Between Testaments." Its by a Jewish Scholar with a long name, very good book so far. What stood out the most for you in this book? :)

There are many places that I have highlighted... The focus away from space toward time and eternity. Our daily regard for the material and our dependence upon technology falls away in place of the bigger picture of the spiritual.

I rarely read any book twice, but this one I would.

Rabbi Heshel is one of the most Christ centered writers of the 20th century. Also, when he was asked to speak at Loma Linda, Jack Provonsha hosted him. He and Jack became lifelong friends and he fell in love with the Seventh-day Adventist church. When he would call Jack his calls started out with "How are we doing?" which was asking about the church as a whole.
