In Sacred Time and the Search for Meaning, Gary Eberle contemplates how humans' view of time has evolved throughout history, how we came to measure time, and why we feel especially starved for it now. Eberle seeks to rediscover a renewed sense of meaning in life through looking for ways to enter the realm of sacred time or "sabbath time" where we can reconnect with the slower, deeper rhythms of life that have traditionally been experienced through religious worship, prayer and observance of holy days. Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul, said "To recover sacred time is to recover our souls, and this book is full of good lessons for doing just that" Rev. Forrest Church wrote" . . . do your soul a favor-read and savor this truly wonderful book"

Review:

"Eberle's expository prose has a clear and simple style that easily carries the reader through many ideas and perceptions. . . . His own reflections on how to alter our relationship with time and to discover both personal and communal sacred time, are at once touching and profound."--Library Journal

"An inspiring book that will compel you to reconsider your use of time and how you can enrich your personal soul time. . . . Take a vow right now to end your time famine and to savor the bounties of sacred time."--Spirituality & Health

"Brimful with modern and ancient wisdom, this book is as captivating as it is liberating. Gary Eberle is the perfect guide through the maze of time to the gates of eternity. Especially if you are too busy, do your soul a favor--read and savor this truly wonderful book."--Forrest Church, author of Bringing God Home and Life Lines

"Sacred Time and the Search for Meaning is of immense importance for the task of getting back to truly basic values and making life once again suitable for humans--and not only for machines and robots. To recover sacred time is to recover our souls, and this book is full of good lessons for doing just that."--Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and The Soul's Religion
