?  About our Ebooks


Sleep occupies around one third of a person's life and is the subject of research across many disciplines. In this groundbreaking new monograph, Andrew Bishop explores sleep by creatively drawing on resources of the Christian tradition.

Sleep is a subject which demands theological attention, because of the central place it occupies in contemporary reflection on what it is to be human. Offering original research, this book investigates sleep for the first time from a theological position, looking at all key questions that a theological treatment of sleep raises, including issues of identity and personhood, sleep and mortality, resurrection, and renewal and healing.


'This is a brilliant book which sheds much godly light on the mystery of sleep. Sleep is surprisingly little explored, given how much of our lives we spend engaged in it. The author provides us here with a treasure trove of biblical and Christian thought, together with much original thinking, which illuminate, challenge and inspire. I commend it very highly.'
- Dr John Inge, Bishop of Worcester
